Recently, a city's industrial and commercial department has seized several cases of counterfeit toilet paper.
Street “half price” brand name toilet paper is fake
Not long ago, on the Longyan Street in Longyan Town, Guanyun County, a Kama brand truck with the license plate number “Su KY59**” was filled with long-volume coreless roll toilet paper labeled “Qingfeng”. A loudspeaker is placed on the radio and is being promoted at a price of 7.5 yuan/bag.
“Qingfeng” brand toilet paper belongs to the famous brand products of Suzhou Hongyeye Paper Group Co., Ltd. in Jiangsu Province. The price of similar products on the market is 15 yuan/bag, and the parties actually sell at half price. This incident has attracted many people’s doubts. There are enthusiastic people who also reflect doubts to the local industry and commerce department. Immediately, the Guanyun County Administration for Industry and Commerce sent law enforcement officers to seize the toilet papers involved in the case and invited the “Qingfeng” trademark owners to identify them. As expected, all these brand-name toilet papers are fake!
According to the investigation of the industry and commerce department, the party Fan is a person from Shuyang County, Jiangsu Province. Because of the cheaper money, he purchased 260 bags (labeled as 1 kg/bag) and “Qingfeng” long-roll coreless roll toilet paper at a price of 1,200 yuan. In order to deceive consumers, he hawked along the street in the form of promotion. Whoever knew that he had just entered the territory of Guanyun County, he was investigated and dealt with, and he was seized for fake toilet paper and was fined 8,000 yuan according to law!
Counterfeit toilet paper is produced by "black factory"
In addition to direct counterfeiting, there is also a “famous brand”, which is to use a similar outer packaging to fool consumers, which is mistaken for brand-name products. Just as Ms. Xu, who was in the market recently, bought a pile of toilet paper at a local market stall in a local market, and when she got home, she saw that it was not a “double light” card but a “happy light” card. According to it, the outer packaging of this "Happy Light" brand toilet paper and "Double Light" brand is very similar. The trademarks are almost the same. Although they are much cheaper, the quality is much worse. Subsequently, the Lianyun Industrial and Commercial Branch, which received the complaint, went to check, and the vendors selling fake toilet paper had disappeared.
The industry and commerce department said that such toilet papers are produced by underground “black processing plants”. The quality is not qualified, and it also contains harmful substances, which may cause users to suffer from various diseases and even cause cancer.
This is not sensational. It is reported that most of these counterfeit and inferior toilet papers are bleached with recycled toilet paper, waste newspapers, rotten paper balls, paper pads with blood stains, and residual harmful substances such as lead and cadmium. Some seemingly white toilet papers actually incorporate fluorescent whitening agents in the production process. Once the fluorescent whitening agents enter the human body, they are not easily decomposed. Toxicity can accumulate in the liver or other vital organs and become a carcinogenic factor.
Professionals in the industry remind the general public that if you find that the toilet paper has slag, pungent smell or white color, please do not use it.
In addition, many people like to wipe their mouths with toilet paper, which is actually not desirable. If the toilet paper is used as a napkin for a long time, it will irritate the skin, cause skin allergies, and cause different diseases, because the toilet paper may be infected with bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, etc., and may even carry hepatitis virus.
How to buy toilet paper for the industrial and commercial department
Here, the industry and commerce department reminds consumers that when purchasing toilet paper, it is necessary to see whether the health permit number is indicated; secondly, the color of the paper, the pure wood pulp paper has no additives, and the color should be natural ivory. The texture is relatively uniform; three look at the price, the market price of the toilet paper is too low to generally contain pure wood pulp; four look at the endurance strength, pure wood pulp paper toughness is not easy to break; poor quality paper has irregular small holes and Drop powder; five look at the result of fire, good toilet paper is white and gray after burning; six look at the shelf life, most of the inferior toilet paper does not have the standard shelf life. In addition, rough and hard toilet paper, unpackaged and sterilized toilet paper should not be purchased as much as possible.
