It is buyer beware when any product label says, “Intended to prevent, treat or cure diseases”. It is particularly buyer beware for the website called www.oxygentherapyprogram.com and its products called Oxygen Therapy (35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide) and Inositol.
Recently, the Food and Drug Administration completed an investigation of 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide and Inositol and noted several FDA violations. In Fact, the Food and Drug Administration documented that there may be more deficiencies associated with the two products.
First, since the products are intended to diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent disease, they fall under the category of classified drugs defined in the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. As such, these products must be recognized as safe and effective for their labeled uses. However, these drugs were not approved by the FDA for safety and efficacy. In addition, new drugs that fall under the classification of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act are not permitted to be introduced to the public until they have been approved. Both 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide and Inositol have been sold to the public without FDA approval. The FDA also discovered that the product label did not provide adequate directions for a person to use the product without the advice of a physician. This is a misbranding violation.
The Food and Drug Administration has warned www.oxygentherapyprogram.com to correct their violations immediately or be subject to possible enforcement action, such as illegal product seizure, criminal prosecution, or an injunction against the manufacturer and distributors of www.oxygentherapyprogram.com products.
Buyers of online medical products should be wary of claims stating that a specific product fights off disease, kills viruses, or thwarts off systematic conditions. Before purchasing an online medical product, bring a print out of the product description and any related information to your physician for his or her review and approval.
