Adulterated Oils should be Destroyed according to Law and No Adjustment Allowed

The media report stating that the Chang Chi Foodstuff Factory Co. products can be adjusted and re-marketed is not valid. Products with additives which are not approved and adulterated products should be confiscated and destroyed, with no adjustments allowed. Only untruthful labeling can be corrected, but in such cases, the corrected label has to be examined and approved by the local health authority before it can be re-marketed. 

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the Ministry of Health and Welfare (MOHW) reiterates that in regard to the oil incident of the Chang Chi Foodstuff Factory Co. and the Flavor Full Foods, the malevolent adulteration of oil falls under the category stated in Article 15 of the Act Governing Food Sanitation “adulterated or counterfeited” and also violates Article 18 of the same Act for containing copper pheophytin; therefore, according to Subparagraphs 1 and 2, Paragraph 1 of Article 52, the product should be confiscated and destroyed, with no adjustments allowed. 

Cases involving failure to honestly disclose the product ingredients are in violation of Article 28 of the Act Governing Food Sanitation regarding false labeling, and are therefore subject to the provisions of Subparagraph 3, Paragraph 1 of Article 52 that goods ordered to be recalled and corrected within a prescribed time period shall not be sold before the labeling is corrected and verified by the local health authority; otherwise those goods shall be confiscated and destroyed according to law. 

FDA once again appeals to the companies that products should be labeled honestly to provide accurate information of the products to the public as references for shopping decisions, in order to protect consumers’ rights.
