Petition Closed

Consumers should be able to trust their local drug store to sell products that will help them, and not deny them the facts about products that are known to be useless. Yet millions of people every year are ripped off by so-called homeopathic products that have no active ingredients.

Sign this petition to tell CVS, Walgreens, and Rite-Aid that if they continue to sell these products, they must educate their customers about the useless products on their shelves.

Your customers deserve to know the truth about the products you sell. So-called homeopathic remedies often have no active ingredients; homeopathy has been shown not to work any better than a placebo; and homeopathic products are not tested or approved by any U.S. health agency.

Consumers should be able to trust their local drug store to sell products that will help them, and not deny them the facts about products that are known to be useless. Many people who buy homeopathic products are shocked to learn that they aren't tested and are based on ridiculous ideas that have been disproven by science.

We ask that your company begin labeling homeopathic products to make these facts clear to customers before they buy, and clearly separating homeopathic products from real medications on store shelves.

We also ask that you disclose your company's profit margin on these fake medicines, and how it compares to your profits on real OTC medications used to treat the same symptoms.
