Update: December, 25/2012 - 12:00

HA NOI (VNS)– The Ha Noi Market Watch yesterday seized more than 1,000 beauty products which had passed their expiry date in 2008.

All products were being stored at the Trade Service And Transport J.S.C, based at 20 Mac Thi Buoi in Hai Ba Trung District's Vinh Tuy Ward.

These products included boxes of face cream, nail polish, shampoo, hair dye and glue from brands including Top Brass, Revlon and Flex.

Inspectors also searched a connected warehouse and discovered many other containers of cosmetics without sufficient legal documentation and proof of origin.

Nguyen Thu Oanh, director of the Thanh Bac Fashion Limited Company, based at 342 Nghi Tam in Tay Ho District's Quang An, said that her business owned the cosmetics and had rented the warehouse to store them since 2008. She said the company had been planning to destroy their expired products, but at the time of the inspection she did not show authorities the necessary paper work.

The case continues. – VNS
