Companies selling drugs that falsely claim to prevent, treat or protect against sexually transmitted diseases are the target of a government crackdown announced today.
In a joint effort, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission said they had ordered 11 companies — including one from Windermere — to stop the sale of these bogus STD cures or face criminal action. Most of the STD drugs are being sold online, though some are also in retail outlets.
Among the products targeted in today’s action are Medavir, Herpaflor, Viruxo, C-Cure and Never An Outbreak. Medavir Medical Advances is based in Windermere, Fl.
