HA NOI (VNS) — Ha Noi's market watch authority inspected several pharmacies in the city, following the recall of some products made by Kingphar Viet Nam Company.

The inspections came after the Drug Administration of Viet Nam, under the health ministry, ordered the recall of three supplementary food products manufactured by Kingphar Viet Nam Company, headquartered at B-58, Nguyen Thi Dinh, Trung Hoa-Nhan Chinh, Ha Noi.

Nine pharmacies were found to be selling the banned products. In addition, several other violations were detected, such as failure to record sales and employment of unqualified staff.

Earlier in May, market force team number three uncovered various food safety violations during an inspection of Kingphar Viet Nam Company's headquarters. Samples were sent to the drug administration's lab for testing. The administration later ordered the company to recall their supplementary food products, True Lady Kingphar, Kingphar Baby and Kingphar bone and joint treatment tablets.

The city's market watch will continue to inspect pharmacies to check for the sale of Kingphar products and conduct further investigations. — VNS
