Authority in the central province of Ha Tinh fined VND15 million (US$701.8) a medicine manufacturer which has produced traditional drugs from corn powder and sugar-cane honey.
In addition to the fine, the provincial People Committee forbade Nguyen Thi Nhuong, 46, who produced the fake traditional drugs at her house, to make traditional drugs forever.
Following the rumor that Nhuong’s family has earned huge profits from making a miracle traditional drug which made from corn powder, sugar-cane honey and some herbals, medical inspectors have paid an unscheduled visit to the house.
Inspectors discovered illegal medicines and suspended the production. They also destroyed 13 bags of corn powder weighing totally 445 kilogram and 368 packages of herbal drugs, sugar-cane honey and many materials without clear indication of origin.
