Congressman Warns About Fake Flu Drugs

NEW YORK -- A New York congressman has issued a warning about con artists selling fake flu drugs online.

Democrat Anthony Weiner says people may be so worried about the swine flu outbreak and what officials say is a temporary vaccine shortage, that they'll take a risk buying drugs online without thinking about it.

He says his office easily found sites selling fake flu drugs.

Weiner says FDA investigators saw some that turned out to be acetaminophen, the active ingredient in the over-the-counter pain killer Tylenol.

Weiner says buyers need to be sure an online site is legitimate and requires a prescription.
