Legal Proceedings against Homeopathy Plus

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has commenced legal proceedings against Homeopathy Plus Australia Pty Ltd and homeopath Frances Sheffield. These complaints concern articles on the Homeopathy Plus website about the effectiveness of the whooping cough vaccine and the homeopathic approach to the treatment and prevention of whooping cough.

Following enquiries made by The Age, Melbourne, the ACCC has also advised Homeopathy Plus Australia Pty Ltd and Ms Sheffield of the possibility that newspapers owned by the Fairfax group will be reporting on this story. We will keep you informed about these events as further information comes to hand.
