Fake Jia Duo Bao (China Herbal tea) circulating in Singapore
Remember to look for the sticker paste on the underside to identify a genuine product
Jia Duo Bao drink, a China Herbal tea, is no stranger to many people as the sponsor of a popular reality talent show, Voice of China.
Wanting to capitalized on this popularity, 4 perpetrators were caught resealing more than 2500 cans of Jia Duo Bao with their own mix from southern Guangdong.
The fake Jia Duo Bao has been sold in Singapore for some time and Singapore authorities are investigating the sale of fake Jia Duo Bao from China.
Mr Wu Guoliang, marketing development manager of Jia Duo Bao Singapore said that the only way consumers can identify a genuine drink is by checking the underside of the can to look for a sticker.
