The US' largest retail outlet, Walmart has been accused of selling fake homeopathic drugs.
According to Forbes, Walmart has been sued for medical fraud. In a lawsuit filed in the District of Columbia, the Center for Inquiry (CFI) alleges that Walmart is “committing wide-scale consumer fraud and endangering the health of its customers through its sale and marketing of homeopathic medicines.” This is similar to a 2018 suit that the same nonprofit brought against CVS, the largest drug retailer in the United States.
Nick Little, CFI’s Vice President and General Counsel, contends that, “Walmart sells homeopathics right alongside real medicines, in the same sections in its stores, under the same signs. Searches on its website for cold and flu remedies or teething products for infants yield pages full of homeopathic junk products. It’s an incredible betrayal of customers’ trust and an abuse of Walmart’s titanic retail power.”
