Tell the FDA to Stop Trying to Censor Consumer Free Speech and Internet Searches!

The US Food and Drug Administration has recently issued a warning letter to Zarbee’s, a Utah-based supplement company—in part for “liking” a Facebook customer testimonial. The FDA accuses them of making implied disease claims.

Companies should not be held responsible for customer comments on social media pages—if a company stops allowing customer comments that might get it in hot water with the FDA, then the agency has censored consumer speech. And the website search accusation is a very slippery slope.

FDA is using a very broad interpretation of what constitutes a disease claim. Please tell the FDA that its attempts to censor consumer free speech and Internet searches is unacceptable, and let the agency know it has completely overstepped its bounds.
