SEATTLE — Officers with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Wednesday seized a shipment of unauthorized pills to treat COVID-19 at the Port of Seattle.
“The use of unauthorized medications can give consumers a false sense of security and prove fatal in some instances,” officials said. “Unauthorized products that claim to cure, treat or prevent serious illnesses such as COVID-19 may cause individuals to delay or stop appropriate medical treatment, leading to serious harm.”
CBP is working with the Food and Drug Administration to protect U.S. consumers from fake or harmful medications.
