“Ingesting these products is the same as drinking bleach,” said FDA acting commissioner Ned Sharpless, according to the release. “Consumers should not use these products, and parents should not give these products to their children for any reason.” Social media sites have shown claims from people who believe the solution is a miracle cure, NBC News reported.
