HÀ NỘI — The Hà Nội Market Management Department’s Team 14 seized four tonnes of corn seeds with unclear expiry date on Wednesday afternoon.
The corn was seized at Tiên Tiến Agriculture Co. Ltd in Đầm Trấu Street of Bạch Đằng District.
The team found that the company had kept over 820kg of expired corn seeds for sale and some 3.5kg of corn seeds with re-printed expiry date.
A representative of the company also failed to show legal documents to prove the origin of the corn seeds.
According to data from the city’s Steering Committee against Smuggling, Trade Fraud and Fake Commodities, nearly 1,050 cases of smuggling and trade fraud were detected and fined in March alone, contributing VNĐ435 billion (US$18.9 million) to the State budget. — VNS
