2,000 bottles sold
The case was triggered by an inspection by the Directorate General for Competition, Consumption and Fraud Control (DGCCRF) on this product from the Vector Energy laboratory in Saint-Maurice-de-Lignon. His analysis had revealed an insufficient ethanol content (35%) to ensure a true anti-viral and anti-bacterial action, the minimum required being 60%. Some 2,000 bottles had been sold at an additional price higher than that capped by the government.
Sentenced in another case to 6 months suspended
Manager of this laboratory specializing in natural products, the defendant was also sentenced Tuesday by a second judgment to six months suspended imprisonment for “usurpation of the title or the quality of pharmacist”. He appeared on direct summons from the National Council of the Order of Pharmacists for an advertisement in which he presented as a drug one of the productions of his company which has about fifteen employees.
