Company Caught Manufacturing Fake Rapid-Screening Reagents 已查獲8萬多快篩試劑 不法所得約2百萬

The Kaohsiung prosecutors recently seized  80,000-plus rapid screening reagents from a company that had been producing them illegally under a client's name.


Kaohsiung prosecutors were recently tipped off about a company producing fake rapid-screening reagents under another company's name. On July 14, the 51-year-old vice president of the company was taken in for questioning.

Hsu Hung-ju, Deputy Chief Prosecutor, Kaohsiung District Prosecutors Office:"The company saw that demand was soaring in May when the outbreaks began and began manufacturing uncertified rapid-screening reagents and accessories. The products were slapped with fake labels bearing the name of a registered company and sold illegally."

The company sold its fake reagent at NT$189 per pop and accessory packages at around NT$300 each to stores, hospitals, and pharmacies. Prosecutors estimate the company earned NT$2 million from the scheme.

Hsu Hung-ju, Deputy Chief Prosecutor, Kaohsiung District Prosecutors Office:" The vice president of the company, surnamed Tsai, has been charged with violating Article 61 of the Medical Devices Act."

It remains unknown what the company put in its reagent, and if the ingredients pose health risks. Prosecutors say people can report tips about fake or illegal products to their local prosecutors office, police, or health bureau.

 

 

 

快篩試劑被裝箱放在工廠內,但這些都是不肖業者冒用委託代工的藥商「三鈺科技」名義,製造並假冒成合法的快篩試劑。高雄地檢署接到通報後,14號循線到業者公司搜索,並通知51歲蔡姓副總到案說明。

高雄地檢署襄閱主任檢察官 徐弘儒表示:「在五月間疫情爆發之際,(業者)發現市場需求大增,有利可圖。竟未經衛福部核准,違反契約,冒用合法公司名義,偽貼標籤,來私自生產快篩試劑及相關配件。」

業者私自截留部分快篩試劑產品,假冒成合法的快篩試劑,以試劑單劑189元不等、配件包每包300元不等,對公司行號、醫院及藥局販售,初估不法所得達2百萬以上。

高雄地檢署襄閱主任檢察官 徐弘儒表示:「涉案公司的蔡姓副總,業經高雄市調查處,以違反醫療器材管理法第61條,移送本署偵辦。」

國內疫情尚未完全控制,快篩試劑需求不減,不肖業者販售假冒且成分不明的試劑,可能對民眾健康造成傷害。地檢署提醒,若發現有黑心或假冒試劑販售的狀況,可向檢調、警方或衛生單位檢舉,共同維護防疫安全。
