New Jersey Foundation Ordered to Cease Distribution of Misbranded COVID-19 Therapy
A federal court has ordered New Jersey-based Natural Solutions Foundation (NSF) to stop selling a “nano silver” solution marketed to prevent and treat coronavirus infections, and to recall and destroy all product distributed this year.
The U.S. District Court of New Jersey entered the judgment on Dec. 27 against the foundation and its co-founders, Ralph Fucetola and Rima Laibow.
The product, “Dr. Rima Recommends Nano Silver 10 PPM,” is no longer available on the NSF Marketplace website. However, Fucetola and Laibow are still soliciting financial contributions to fight the federal lawsuit.
The case by the Department of Justice alleged that the ostensibly silver-containing liquid was being marketed as a preventive or cure for coronavirus infection, making it an unapproved drug.
