There’s a warning about scammers looking to profit off of the flu epidemic.
The FDA is warning consumers to avoid fraudulent products that claim to prevent, treat or cure the flu.
They include drugs, dietary supplements, teas and air filters that the FDA has not approved.
It says there are no legally marketed over-the-counter drugs to prevent or cure the flu, only to treat its symptoms.
The best way to avoid it is to get a flu shot.
