Kaohsiung, Sept. 9 (CNA) The owner of a company in Tainan was detained Wednesday for allegedly selling falsely labeled non-medical grade masks from China and Vietnam, according to the Ciaotou District Prosecutors Office.

The company owner, Huang Chao-yu (黃朝玉), is suspected of repackaging the masks in boxes and plastic bags labeled "Three-layered medical grade masks, Made in Taiwan, Approved by the Food and Drug Administration," prosecutors said.

Some of the boxes also bore the counterfeit trademark of another Taiwanese company, they said.

On Wednesday, a Kaohsiung court granted prosecutors' request for Huang to be held in detention after he was summoned for questioning the previous day, the prosecutors' office said.
