Pharmacies obliged to stop selling food supplements
The Center for Combating Corruption and Economic Crime discovered a fraudulent scheme used by Moldovan economic entities to import and sell food supplements on the market without certificates issued by the Preventive Medicine Center.
During a month, the Center’s officers had carried out unexpected controls at pharmacies and pharmaceutical deposits in Chisinau to identify those that illegally import and sell food supplements through the agency of pharmaceutical distribution networks. They seized contraband merchandise worth more than 272,000 lei.
As most of the preparations are available from pharmacies, this week the Center inspected 36 drugstores and depots through which the given firms sold their goods, located all over the country. The officers seized goods to the value of about 80,000 lei as these were not accompanied by certificates showing their safety.//REPORTER.MD
