The Chinese Ministry of Health has published a list of 67 substandard disinfectant products on its official website.

The ministry recently launched a campaign to crack down on illegal publicity describing disinfectant products in pharmacies as drugs. Of the products sold in pharmacies in Yunnan, Shaanxi and Anhui, 67 were found that were not correctly described on labels or in instruction manuals, and which might mislead consumers.

The ministry warns that disinfectant products are quite different from medicines as disinfectants can not cure diseases. According to the relevant laws and regulations, the publishing of any exaggeration, misinformation, or indication of curative effects on product labels or in instruction manuals is prohibited.

The campaign is now in process, and the Ministry of Health will continue to expose substandard products.
