TAIPEI, Taiwan — Jen Sheng (人生製藥) has become the latest firm to be added to the tainted-
medicine scandal after it was allegedly found to be illegally adding industrial calcium carbonate (碳酸鈣) to a well-known stomach powder, Cheng Shing Tai’s (鄭杏泰) Weidalon (胃達樂散), said Changhua officials last night.
During investigations into industrial magnesium carbonate-tainted products, authorities inadvertently uncovered that I Hsing Trade Company (誼興貿易) had been illegally supplying Jen Sheng with calcium carbonate, and produced Weidalon with the chemical as a commission for Cheng Shing Tai from 2008 to 2011. More than 2,000 bottles of the possibly tainted stomach powder have been seized as a precaution. [FULL STORY]
