FDA warns about false cancer treatment claims

The FDA warned 14 companies to retract false claims that their vegetable extracts, teas, creams and other products diagnose or treat cancer in people and pets. Officials said the agency is increasingly seeing bogus products pitched to dog and cat owners as cures for cancer, but untested products could be unsafe and prevent pets or people from receiving lifesaving medical care.
