Taipei, Sept. 15 (CNA) A company in New Taipei is being investigated for allegedly selling falsely labeled face masks from China, with 60,000 of the masks seized, the city government said Tuesday.

Team Power Healthcare Ltd. was found to have imported the face masks from China and falsely labeled them as being made in Malaysia, which was the country of origin of the goods specified in the import permit, according to the city's Department of Public Health.

The company is accused of importing the Chinese-made face masks without obtaining the correct import permit, thereby violating the Pharmaceutical Affairs Act and the Criminal Code, New Taipei Mayor Hou Yu-ih (侯友宜) said, adding that the products will be pulled from store shelves.

Meanwhile, Team Power posted a new return policy on its official website, saying that returns of the Chinese-made masks are accepted from now until Oct. 7.    [FULL  STORY]
