The State Council recently sent out an inspection team to check false advertisement and health food fraud in Henan province. Regulators from nine departments in Zhengzhou met with the inspectors who gave guidance on the relevant work at the meeting.
The inspectors gave positive review towards the efforts put by the local regulators on cracking down illegal conducts related to health food fraud and false advertisement.
The local regulators of Henan province have seized over 9000 illegal health food so far this year, and punished vendors who claimed that their health product can cure disease and fined them with over 770,000 yuan. The local media regulators also started to monitor relevant ads around the clock. (Source: henan.gov.cn)
