Mehmet Oz’s ties with China deepen: financial disclosures

blank

Famed doctor Mehmet Oz, a persistent candidate against China in the Pennsylvania Senate race, has come under renewed fire for his long history with the communist country.

dr Oz, who tried to smear one of his top opponents – David McCormick – for writing about China from his days as a former hedge fund CEO, has ties to China that continue to deepen. The famous doctor’s most recent association with China was a partnership with “Malouf Companies based in Utah, who used his name and identity on numerous sleep products made in China,” which Oz reported between 1 million and 5 million last year, according to a Dollar raised report by Politico Playbook.

Playbook wrote that the deal was signed with the company in 2020 to produce a brand of bedding bearing his name, dubbed “Dr. Oz Good Life” and had labels that said “DrOzSleep.com Made in China”:

Oz has other business dealings with China that haven’t received much attention. Daniel Lippman reports that Oz made between $1 million and $5 million last year from a deal with Utah-based Malouf Companies, which have used his name and identity on numerous sleep products made in China, according to a new personal finance disclosure .

In 2020, he signed a deal with the company for a sleep and bedding brand called Dr. Oz Good Life.” (The labels on one of their mattress pads and pillow clearly identify their origin: “DrOzSleep.com Made in China.”) A person close to the Oz campaign said that only small portions of the sleep products could not be made in the US or elsewhere were made in China.

A press release announcing the brand partnership touted how the famous doctor plans to use the Chinese-made brand to “bring science-based sleep solutions to families across North America.”

When asked by Oz’s campaign to comment on the new revelations about its ties with China, spokeswoman Brittany Yanick told Playbook, “David McCormick is Beijing’s favorite candidate as he has raised billions in China to support the CCP and celebrated shipping PA jobs overseas.”

“DR. Oz knows firsthand the importance of moving production back to the US and breaking China’s stranglehold on global supply chains, all of which have been sent overseas thanks to Wall Street insiders like McCormick,” added Yanick.

However, this isn’t the first time Oz, who is trying to run as a China Hawk, has been linked with China. Oz has come under fire in recent months for his long history of kowtowing to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). These revelations come after he tried to set himself apart from the rest of the Republican primary field by urging President Joe Biden to “tougher” Beijing while accusing the CCP of currency manipulation and stealing American intellectual property.

It was revealed last month that the famous doctor had a lucrative sponsorship deal with US-based Usana Health Sciences during and after his 12-year career the dr Oz show. In fact, the company that has paid him millions has stated that China is its “biggest market and source of income”. Usana also has a major Chinese subsidiary – BabyCare – which has reportedly acquired a license from the Chinese government to sell its products in the communist country.

The company also released Yin yang you, which Oz co-authored with Anlong Xu, the president of Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, which is supported by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The book collaboration of Dr. Oz with the CCP-backed academic showed his drive to make money in the communist country and helped advance the CCP’s propaganda efforts.
