A North Carolina woman is accused of selling unapproved COVID-19 remedies after being busted by an undercover agent in New Hampshire, authorities said.

According the complaint, Diana Daffin operates a business called Holistic Healthy Pet.

In March of last of year, officials with the Food and Drug Administration learned she was selling an unapproved drug on her website that she claimed was a COVID-19 remedy and treatment, and the agency warned her to pull the product, officials said.

Despite the warning, Daffin allegedly continued to sell the drug, shipping it to an undercover agent in New Hampshire, officials said.
