Nutritional supplement company Quickwork LLC and one of its managers, Eric Anthony Nepute, have agreed to injunctions and to pay civil penalties to resolve a lawsuit alleging they deceptively marketed vitamin supplements during the COVID-19 pandemic, in violation of the Federal Trade Commission Act and the COVID-19 Consumer Protection Act. The resolution of this lawsuit follows an order issued by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri on July 19…

In a complaint filed on April 15, 2021, the government alleged that the defendants made misleading and unsubstantiated advertising claims that their Vitamin D and Zinc supplements could be used to treat or prevent COVID-19, and in fact provide equal or better protection against COVID-19 than the available COVID-19 vaccines. The complaint also alleged that the defendants had mischaracterized the results of scientific studies to support some of their claims.

Quickwork agreed to an injunction and a $1 million civil penalty…On July 19, the court granted partial summary judgment against Nepute, finding that there was no reasonable basis in the record to support claims that Zinc can treat or prevent COVID-19, or that Vitamin D or Zinc provide equal or better protection against COVID-19 than the available COVID-19 vaccines. In an order entered on Aug. 2, Nepute agreed to an injunction and to pay $80,000 in civil penalties.

“Consumers have a right to receive truthful information when deciding whether to purchase products,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Brian M. Boynton, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Division. “This is especially important when claims about those products could affect how consumers seek to protect themselves during a pandemic.”

  1. Ivermectin saved my father from cancer. He had stage 2 rectal cancer. They wanted him to get a full chemotherapy infusion. Because of Covid 19 I read a lot about Ivermectin, came across studies about colo-rectal cancer and the rest is history.

    I give my father, still, once a week: 1/2 a tube of IVM, 2grams of vitamin C, 100mg Zinc, and 15,000 IU of vitamin D. His doctors were outraged that he got better. They couldn’t believe it. In reality they were upset they couldn’t make money off of chemo.

    The day is coming where you won’t be able to get ivermectin, and you won’t be able to go to the vitamin aisle and buy what you want. As all our vaccines are replaced with mRNA vaccines, as our food supply is already tainted with mRNA vaccines, our choice to self-medicate will be removed.

    1. Is that the same dosage he took at the outset, when the cancer was detected?

      Also, what are the ideal conditions for long term storage of IVM, and how long does it last (both paste and liquid)?

      1. In a cool, dark place for all medications. Meds lose about 10% efficacy each year past their expiration date. This isn’t something drug companies want you to know. I can’t guarantee this is true for all meds and some may become counter productive but 50% of something is better than 0% when the drug becomes unavailable.
        Missionary efforts from the hospital used to send expired drugs and equipment to other countries until drug companies lobbied the government to stop it.

    1. It was likely much cheaper to pay the fines, rather than the legal costs of fighting it and the slim chance that any American judge in the year 2023 will not side with the government jargon given event he Supreme Court believes the covid hype, therefore willing to side with the extremist government violations of your rights as a necessity.

  2. Note the outrageous irony coming from the government attorney. “Consumers have a right to truthful information.”
