TAIPEI, Taiwan — In the investigation into the deaths of piglets in Yunlin and
Changhua counties, Yunlin prosecutors said, they found that the animals have been injected with a counterfeit product that was basically a diluted vaccine.
The counterfeit vaccines were supplied by a suspect surnamed Wang, who was selling them at NT$63 (US$2.09) per dose through a middleman surnamed Shen, according to a statement issued by the Yunlin District Prosecutors Office Monday.
In turn, Shen was selling the fake vaccines at NT$65-NT$74 per dose, undercutting the price of genuine vaccines, which is NT$75 per dose, the prosecutors said.
They said the two suspects made at least NT$25 million in the scam. [FULL STORY]
