Friday, April 15, 2016

Authorities in China arrested six suspects for manufacturing counterfeit infant formula and distributing the fake goods in seven provinces in the country. Officials suspect the group produced at least 17,000 cans of the infant formula, which was made to look like a product manufactured by a U.S. company, and received more than $300,000 for selling the counterfeits in physical locations and online. The U.S. company released a statement indicating it became aware of the counterfeiting operation in December 2015 and that authorities seized all of the fake products sold by the criminal group by the end of the year. China’s state food safety authority stated that initial investigations determined the counterfeit formula posed no safety risks.

A recent announcement from the Chinese cabinet indicated that as many as 357 officials, tied to the diversion of vaccines to a mother-and-daughter team - who allegedly sold them outside official channels - will be punished, MarketWatch reports, citing the state-controlled Xinhua news service. The state has already detained more than 200 people implicated in the scandal and filed criminal cases against 192, Xinhua said. The arrests were made after an investigation revealed that over a period of 5 years 88 million dollars’ worth of vaccines were distributed outside of official channels in a number of Chinese provinces. The group reportedly sold vaccines that treated meningitis, rabies and other illnesses. There were fears the vaccines had not been stored and shipped in a temperature-controlled manner to protect their safety and efficacy.
