Fraud Alert – OKpet.com sells fake Frontline® for cats and dogs
Posted by mwearl on August 27, 2010
You come home to find Rover or Whiskers scratching fleas. You know you should get some Frontline® from your local vet, but you just can’t afford it. But a quick search on the internet delivers several websites with discount products.
OKpet.com is one of those sites. They advertise Frontline® for a medium dog for only $29 – what a deal! It seemed to take a long time to get there, and when it finally arrived, you realize why. You notice it had to go through US customs – 1st red flag.
Upon closer inspection, you will see directions in both English and some backward language – literally, the words go right to left – 2nd red flag. At this point, you could dowse your pet with the suspect liquid and hope it kills fleas instead of your pet. Personally, I wouldn’t chance it. What you have, my friend, is genuinely COUNTERFEIT Frontline®!
Here are the facts, folks:
- Frontline does not have an expiration date. If your Frontline® has an expiration date, then it ain’t Frontline®.
- If there are stickers from Africa, Australia or your product was shipped from some other country across the great pond, be suspicious.
- Go to http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/factsheets/petproduct.htm, http://frontline.us.merial.com/ or visit your vet for more information.
