Up to now, Juxian County has served nearly 102 local factories to save equipment purchase costs for measurement departments. The Bureau of quality and technical supervision has inspected 43 shopping malls, supermarkets and wholesale departments, 76 food production and processing enterprises, and seized more than 3000 food labels that misled consumers

during the inspection, the law enforcement officers of the Bureau found many problems. Food labels of individual food production and processing businesses describe and introduce food in a misleading and deceptive way. If 1 Product specification: hy-0230 ordinary fruit juice beverage made of water, fruit juice, white granulated sugar, etc., but marked as a special fresh fruit health drink. Some food labels wantonly exaggerate the role of products. Law enforcement officers saw in a wholesale department in a township that the instruction manual of a health green tea in Linyi states that drinking this tea often can improve the disease resistance function of the human body, especially for premature gray hair, hair loss, hypertension, heart disease, cerebral thrombosis, arteriosclerosis, etc. There are also some enterprises that do not mark the production date, batch number and quality guarantee date of their products.
