HÀ NỘI — The Vietnam Food Administration (VFA) under the Ministry of Health has issued an alert after finding that a number of websites promoting dietary supplements and health products violated advertising regulations.

The websites included Avisure Mama Hi-Q and Avisure Mama Multi of Bảo Minh Pharmaceutical Joint Stock Company advertising on avisuremama.com, tiki.vn, sendo.vn; Hàu Tam Hiệp Plus of United Sport Medical Ltd Co on http://bantinnamgioi.tk; health products with extracts from solanum procumbens on thaoduoccagaileo.com, cagaileosadu.com.vn; and Omexxel Ali of Reli USA joint stock company on http://lazada.vn; http://shop.vnexpress.net; http://chuabenhxuattinhsom.net; Red Pine Gold of An Thịnh Phát Ltd on sieuthisuckhoe.vn and sieuthisamhanquoc.com.vn.

The administration said its representatives have contacted the companies whose products are advertised on the above-mentioned websites. The companies claimed that they didn’t advertise on those websites and are not responsible for their legality. Therefore, the quality and safety of these health food products cannot be guaranteed.

The VFA urged consumers to take note of this information and advised them to be careful while buying health products online. — VNS
