WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal health officials are cracking down on bogus pills and supplements that claim to cure sexually transmitted diseases like HIV, herpes and genital warts. The Food and Drug Administration sent warning letters to more than a dozen companies selling non-prescription products with names like Medavir, Herpaflor and C-Cure. The agency said none of the products have been proven to treat any disease. "These products are dangerous because they are targeted to patients with serious conditions, where treatment options proven to be safe and effective are available," said Deborah Autor, FDA's director of drug compliance. The companies cited by the FDA will have 15 days to pull their products off the market. If they do not, the agency can take legal action, including seizing products and taking company officials to court. (Copyright 2011 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
