In March 2013 the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) commenced legal proceedings in the Federal Court of Australia against Homeopathy Plus and Fran Sheffield.
The ACCC claimed the two had misled and deceived people with statements about homeopathy’s ability to prevent or treat a serious epidemic and communicable disease, and statements about the effectiveness of the vaccine for that same disease. These claims have been denied and are being vigorously defended.
‘REDACTED’ content in several articles and posts on the Homeopathy Plus website had some relationship to this case and so, under the terms of sub judice, has been removed until the hearing is concluded. Upon a successful outcome it will be once again returned.
