The FDA and The CPPD Burn Illicit Goods in Ayutthaya

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in Thailand and Consumer Protection Police Division (CPPD) seized more than 31 tons of unlawful healthcare products and destroyed them in Ayutthaya, a province and city only an hour from the capital of Thailand, Bangkok.
The goods were taken during a partnership operation between the two organizations that lasted from 2014 to 2020. They will be destroyed in 2021 because the courr cases have been dismissed.
The burning of the goods started at 10:30 in the morning at the Bang Pa-In Industril Estate. The CPPD commander Police Major General Nathasak Chaowansai, FDA secretary-general Paisarn Dunkum, and other officials witnessed the incineration of these goods.
Among the goods destroyed were medical equipment, cosmetics, food supplements, and illegal medicines, according to Dr. Paisarn.
Over the course of the joint operation from 2014 to 2020, the FDA and the CPPD seized 328 items and valued them at about 500 million baht.
Among the items destroyed were erectile dysfunction medicine, cosmetics, imported vitamins, fillers, and botox, as well as herbal supplements.
Supatra Boonserm, FDA deputy-secretary, thinks that when people come across illegitimate products they must call both the FDA and CPPD hotlines to report it. Their numbers are 1556 and 1556, respectively.
The deputy secretary said that individuals may go to the nearest provincial health office or use the Oreo Smartphone app to file a complaint.
