China Cracked Down

21 02 2013

Tonight I stumbled upon a short article that was published yesterday from It says that the Ministry of Public Security and the State Food and Drug Administration seized more than 20,000 suspects for making and distributing counterfeits pharmaceuticals last year.

According to the statement released yesterday by the two organizations, these suspects were involved in 14,000 cases that amounted to more than 16 billion yuan (2.56 billion U.S. dollars). The statement also says that twenty-eight companies were shut down and 228 suspects were arrested for making capsules and gelatin products containing excessive chromium.

In the statement they also say that the departments will  intensify coordinated efforts to crack down on counterfeit drugs. We shall see.
