Kim Kardashian is usually known for her selfies, but the FDA didn’t take to much of a liking to her latest one endorsing the product Diclegis. Diclegis is a drug that cures morning sickness, and Kim posted a picture with the product as well as all the benefits of the product on her Instagram.
The picture gained almost 470k likes, but also prompted a letter from the FDA.
Part of the letter reads, “The social media post is misleading because it presents various efficacy claims for Diclegis, but fails to communicate any risk information.”
The original post that Kardashian posted has been taken down, but Kardashian says the drug made her feel “a lot better and most importantly, it’s been studied and there was no increased risk to the baby.” Duchesnay, the company who designed the drug, told CNBC that while Kim was paid to promote the product she found it on her own through her family OB-GYN. The company said they would be taking quick action in response to the FDA’s letter.
