This Company Mislabeled Its Coronavirus Destroyer Tea, FDA Says
A website selling "Coronavirus Destroyer Tea" has been issued a warning from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration because of misleading information, according to a letter posted on the FDA's site.
After reviewing the website ausarherbs.com, the FDA determined that the product, which "is intended to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure COVID-19" is a misbranded drug that has not been approved by the organization and is in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act).

The website says a doctor and his colleagues recommended the formula, saying it reversed COVID-19 in seven days, every time, with full symptom relief in three days. The FDA says consumers should not buy the tea or any other coronavirus-related product in violation of the FD&C Act. A full list of those items can be found here.
"We request that you take immediate action to cease the sale of any unapproved and unauthorized products," the FDA's letter to the company reads."We advise you to review your websites, product labels, and other labeling and promotional materials to ensure that you are not misleadingly representing your products as safe and effective for a COVID-19-related use for which they have not been approved by FDA and that you do not make claims that misbrand the products." As of Feb. 9, the tea is no longer listed for sale on the website.
