BANGKOK, 4 Nov, 2014 (NNT) – Health officials and online informants have warned consumers to be more careful when buying or eating sea food following reports of fake seaweed.
According to online sources, the fake seaweed, which was discovered at a fresh market at Rangsit area, looks similar to real seaweed but was much tougher because it was made from plastic. The products were imported from China.
Health officials, meanwhile, disclosed that fake seaweed had hit some outlets in Mae Hong Sorn province. Inspections found that the fake seaweed was not certified by the country’s Food and Drug Administration. Its packages show neither the addresses of the producer nor the importer.
