China's Ministry of Health has published a list of 67 substandard disinfection products and is reminding consumers to be prudent when choosing these products.
The MOH carried out a special campaign recently focusing on disinfectant products sold by drug stores. During the campaign, the ministry's affiliates in Yunnan, Shaanxi, and Anhui discovered 67 unqualified products. The problems with these products include not having a standard label or specifications and cheating or misleading consumers about product effectiveness.
The MOH says that some of these products are not disinfection products at all, but they mislead consumers with a label indicating that they are disinfection products. The ministry states that there are big differences between drugs and disinfection products. One of the key differences is that disinfection product can not be used to cure diseases.
The products exposed reportedly include the popular feminine hygene products Fuyanjie and Jie'eryin.
