Inspectors crack down on Lanlay oil

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The authorities in Taichung City cracked down on a cosmetics product which apparently had its sell-by dates tampered with, reports said Saturday.
The list of ingredients and the sell-by dates for a Lanolin-based oil carrying the brand name Lanlay and distributed by Taiying Co., Ltd. raised questions in the minds of health inspectors, reports said.
As a result, the Taichung City health authorities, where Taiying is based, ordered the company to remove the product from shelves by October 14 and to complete a recall by October 25.
Lanlay products in Taichung and Tainan were found to show problems, so inspectors went to visit the headquarters of Taiying on October 8. They sealed off a warehouse containing 36 products which might violate laws regulating cosmetics.
The manager of the company, a man surnamed Tseng, reportedly admitted that before his representation of Lanlay was ending last February, he used alcohol and new bottle tops to extend the sell-by dates on the cosmetics.
Because so many products were being sold under the Lanlay brand, it would take some time to determine which products exactly had been affected by Taiying’s scheme, authorities said.
Because several violations were involved, including forgery and the selling of forged goods, the Taichung District Prosecutors Office had taken control of the investigation, reports said.
