The said confections were reportedly smuggled in from China.
The HCMC MMD seized the confections and further checks are to be carried out on 27 other warehouses today.
The Binh Tay Liquor and Binh Tay Liquor Packing JSCs’ premises occupy dozens of hectares and include many large warehouses hired out to store goods.
The Market Management Department will work with owners of the goods for further investigations.
