Fake Health Food with Viagra Added Destroyed in Hainan

Police in south China's Hainan province have discovered and shut down locations where fake health food, found to contain Viagra, was produced. The food had previously been distributed and sold online to at least 13 provinces, the Beijing Times reports.

The product which claimed to improve men's health by natural ingredients was found to have Viagra added to it. Viagra is a prescription medicine. Its main function is to help men maintain an erection for sexual activity. Viagra is not an over-the-counter drug because it has some negative side effects.

It was a difficult job for the police to locate the crime suspect. Fortunately, the police finally arrested the suspect by tracking his daily waste. The police found that the production locations were dark, dirty and dusty, lacking the clean healthy conditions proper production requires. In addition, all the documents required for food and medicine production were also fake.

The product had decent sales resulting from good package design and active promotions. However, the 'effect' of the product is what mattered most. In order to insure the product's effects, the money-oriented suspect added prescription Viagra. The cost of the food was 0.2 yuan and the wholesale price was 0.5 yuan.

Local police explained that logistics companies which are responsible for the products seldom check the products they help to transport. So experts have called for concerted efforts to help prevent such crimes in the future.
