Health Watchdog suspends company producing bottled water

Inspectors from the Health Department in Ho Chi Minh City suspended operations of the M.E.G.A Bottled Water Company located at E25 Duong Quang Ham Street in Go Vap District on October 22, after hundreds of unsafe bottled water were uncovered.

On October 3, the Health Department ordered the M.E.G.A. Company to suspend operations and withdraw all products from the market, after the company failed to comply with hygiene standards in its bottling plant. Later when the health watchdogs raided the company premises they found employees continuing to bottle water in its production line.

Authorities have now sealed off all stocks and operations of the company and ordered it to obey the department’s decision to suspend production.
