FDA Moves Against Swine Flu Fraud
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with the economic possibilities of swine flu. The Food and Drug Administration says it's found at least 20 Web sites selling products to guard against the flu. One site offered the SilverCure Swine Flu Protection Pack. For one low price of $199, you too, could own shampoo, lotion, conditioner and soap. They supposedly deposit traces of silver, which, according to the FDA, is not proven to do anything.
It's MORNING EDITION.
