FDA Warns Consumers of Fake COVID Testing Kits

Though there are hundreds of FDA-approved COVID-19 tests, there are just as many counterfeit products on the market.

As COVID-19 cases soar out of control across the world, test kits are in short supply. However, according to the FDA, thereโ€™s no shortage of fake tests out there and they are warning the public. A recent CNBC article discussed the issue, and offered some guidance on how to avoid bogus tests. The FDA issued an alert last Tuesday that discussed fake or unauthorized at-home tests and a range of other products that falsely claim to treat Covid symptoms.

The CNBC article offers steps for avoiding the fakes including checking for FDA approval, research before buying, and getting a test from your doctor.
