Govt identifies clothing items with fake labels
Jan '11
Around 1700 products bearing fake labels were traced during an inspection which was carried out from January 10 to 12 before the shopping spree began for the Chinese New Year which is on February 3. The government of Taiwan cautioned the consumers to check the clothing as well as accessory labels after this incident.

According to the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection, on the whole 1,689 clothing products, shoes as well as accessories were identified from various outlets across various cities in the country which had fake labels. These cities included Hsinchu City, New Taipei City and Kaohsiung.

The bureau reported that some of the labels did not show the country of origin of the products whereas others were incoherent. Some of the clothing products had separate labels showing different countries of origin like Hong Kong on one and South Korea on the other.

The bureau warned the retailers to remove the products bearing such irregular labeling from the store shelves. In case they fail to do so they will be penalized with NT$20,000 (US$689) to NT$200,000.
