Since last September, the local authorities including food and drug safety office, the local market regulation bureau, and the public security bureau teamed up to crack down over sales fraud, false advertisement and illegal additives of health food and general food.
The campaign has yielded positive results. In about ten months, the local authorities have cracked 15 illegal cases relevant to health food and general food. So far, Taizhou has five health food companies with 34 official approval numbers of health food.
The illegal cases involve 130000 boxes of health food with the value of 1.6 billion yuan. Relevant vendors have been detained by the police. (Source: Taizhou Daily)
