Federal Judge Halts Bleach Sales In Florida After Church Started Selling It As COVID-19 Cure

A federal judge had to step in and stop a South Florida church from selling industrial bleach as a cure for COVID-19.

According to Newsweek, The Genesis II Church of Health & Healing had been marketing a “Master Mineral Solution” (MMS) on their affiliated websites.

According to the church, the MMS could alleviate COVID-19 through “sacramental dosing.” It instructed adults to take six drops of “activated MMS” in a glass of water every two hours.

“This should wipe it out this flu-like virus that many are being scared with its presence in this world,” one of the church’s websites said.

“Despite a previous warning, the Genesis II Church of Healing has continued to actively place consumers at risk by peddling potentially dangerous and unapproved chlorine dioxide products,” Dr. Stephen M. Hahn, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, said in a press release. “We will not stand for this, and the FDA remains fully committed to taking strong enforcement action against any sellers who place unsuspecting American consumers at risk by offering their unproven products to treat serious diseases.”

According to Newsweek, “The Justice Department’s action is a civil complaint, and the church’s officials—Mark, Joseph, Jordan and Jonathan Grenon—have not been charged criminally. None of them responded to a request for comment.”
