Counterfeit products hit by raids

Chinese police have driven thousands of counterfeit producers out of business through the colorfully-named Operation ‘Bright Sword.’ They seized 14,185 suspected individuals and shut down 7,000 production outlets in the last five months in a long-term mission to halt the production and sale of counterfeit goods.

Eight fields–including fake international brands, fake food and drugs, and pirated films–served as primary targets. Officials have cited the raids as not only meant to deter unfair economic practices but to improve the health of the Chinese people and to ensure that products can be trusted.

Perhaps the most significant victory was the confiscation of counterfeit food additives, and fake, poorly-made pharmaceuticals. The mass confiscation of clenbuterol, a substance banned after it was found to be a key player in a tainted pork scandal last month, was a definite triumph.
