Firm, 2 others indicted for cancer treatments

Posted 4/28/14

PROVIDENCE – A federal grand jury in Providence last week returned a 24-count indictment alleging that a Portsmouth-based compay, its owner and his wife marketed and sold in excess of $2 million worth of products not approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration.

According to the indictment, Daniel Chapter One owner James Feijo and his wife, Patricia Feijo, marketed and sold unapproved health products and supplements 7 Herb Formula, Bio Shark and GDU, which were not generally recognized as safe and effective for use by the FDA. The indictment also alleges that the products, as marketed, were not generally recognized as safe and effective by qualified experts for the cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of cancer. The products were allegedly marketed and sold through various websites, in-store advertisements, a call center, on the Feijos’ daily radio program, and through the use of promotional materials and publications.

In addition, it is alleged that from 2006 through 2011, James Feijo falsely represented to Daniel Chapter One employees that they were independent contractors, when in truth they were employees of Daniel Chapter One. •
