A district court on Friday ordered Chang Chi Foodstuff and its owner to pay
compensation of NT$91 million (US$3 million) to a group of consumers who had bought sub-standard cooking oils produced by the company.
The amount includes NT$5.85 million (US$192,400) for property damage and NT$85 million (US$2.8 million) for non-property damage, the Changhua District Court said in its verdict in a class action suit that was filed by the Consumers Protection Association on behalf of 3,700 consumers.
The court, however, determined that only 2,840 of the consumers had bought the sub-standard oils and were therefore eligible for compensation.
Chang Chi has the right to appeal the verdict. [FULL STORY]
