How To Control a Radio Frequency (RF) Process

The radio frequency welding and manufacturing process uses electromagnetic energy and pressure to fuse and permanently bond vinyl, thermoplastic, and coated materials to produce a specific product - all according to customer requirements.

July 9, 2020

FDA today continued to take action in the ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Today, a U.S. District Court in Florida granted a motion for default judgment and a permanent injunction against the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, Jonathan Grenon, and Jordan Grenon for violating federal law by distributing their product, “Miracle Mineral Solution,” an industrial bleach that the defendants claim is a cure for COVID-19 and other serious diseases. The order issued today permanently prohibits the defendants from selling or distributing unapproved or misbranded products, such as Mineral Miracle Solution (MMS). In prior warning statements, the FDA has urged consumers not to purchase or use MMS, explaining that drinking MMS is the same as drinking bleach and can cause dangerous side effects, including severe vomiting, diarrhea, and life-threatening low-blood pressure. In May, the federal judge entered a preliminary injunction against the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing and four individual defendants associated with the entity.
  • Testing updates:
    • To date, the FDA has currently authorized 171 tests under EUAs; these include 142 molecular tests, 27 antibody tests, and 2 antigen tests.
