"Snacks" online selling manufacturers play mystery

Lawyer: "Playing the stalk" cannot be reduced to a "figure sheet" of three no products and a "free of fines" that violates public order and good customs

  Recently, Ms. Zhang in Shenzhen found a pile of suspected "family planning supplies" boxes in the bedside storage box of her 14-year-old son. Ms. Zhang took a closer look and found that the contents were actually a kind of "spoof candy".

  A reporter from Beijing Youth Daily found on an e-commerce platform that dozens of shops package snacks into spoof gifts. The prices of these snacks range from a few yuan to a dozen yuan, and most of them are in the form of "gift boxes." Selling is called "tricky and spoof", and some merchants also "intimately" note "secret delivery".

  At the same time, the reporter found in the photos of some buyers' shows that the packaging of such vulgar so-called spoof snacks often did not indicate the manufacturer and other information.

  The reporter tried to contact several merchants and asked about the manufacturer and other information, but did not get a reply.

Only one customer service of a snack shop said that these items were produced by their own stores and produced them through molds.

"The original intention of our production is just because the'spoof' snacks are more marketable, but we can guarantee that there will be no problems with them."

  The customer service also told reporters that the "aunt towel cotton candy" sold in the store was shipped from the warehouse and produced by a manufacturer in Hunan.

  The reporter interviewed some parents of primary and middle school students. Almost all of them said that they "do not want children to touch them". Among them, Ms. Li was very worried. "Now children all use mobile phones to shop and they will also be exposed to short videos. What if they see it?" She expressed the hope that relevant departments can ban the production of such commodities.

  It is understood that since this year, market supervision and management departments in many places have taken rectification actions on related "net celebrity" products.

  In Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province, "spoof" candy occupies the C position on the shelves of many Internet celebrity snack shops. Some consumers ignore their production date, shelf life, production address and other information when buying, which brings opportunities for illegal businesses. .

The market supervision department of Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province carried out a special surprise inspection of some Internet celebrity snack shops and found that there were problems with 29 types and 503 "Internet celebrity" snacks sold in two stores, most of which were "spoof" candies.

  Among them, there are 8 types and 181 products without label identification and ingredient list on the outer packaging of the product standard code, manufacturer information, etc.; 21 types and 322 products have names such as "Wife Guaiguaiwan" and "Husband Wenshun Granules" Etc., suspected of violating good social customs.

  Law enforcement officers immediately took compulsory seizure measures on all the above-mentioned products, and will initiate investigations into the above-mentioned two stores.


The act of spoofing snacks violated relevant laws

  Zhang Xiaobin, a lawyer at Beijing Zhilin Law Firm, said that “Internet celebrities” must not be reduced to “figure sheets” of three no products, and “playing obstructions” must not be “exempt from fines” against good social customs.

  For these so-called spoof foods, food safety is not a problem. The vulgar and explicit appearance and packaging not only violate the public order and good customs of the society, but also violate relevant laws.

  According to Article 71 of the Food Safety Law, “labels and instructions for food and food additives must not contain false content, and must not involve disease prevention or treatment functions. Producers and operators are responsible for the content of the labels and instructions provided by them. "

  At the same time, according to Article 3 of the Advertising Law: “Advertisements should be true and legal, and express advertising content in a healthy form, in line with the requirements for the construction of socialist spiritual civilization and the promotion of the excellent traditional culture of the Chinese nation.”

  Article 4 of the "Advertising Law" stipulates: "Advertisements must not contain false or misleading content, and must not deceive or mislead consumers. Advertisers shall be responsible for the authenticity of the advertising content."

  In addition, Item 7 and Item 8 of Article 9 of the "Advertising Law" also stipulate that products must not interfere with public order or violate good social customs; they must not contain obscenity, pornography, gambling, superstition, terror, or violence.

  The relevant staff of the Market Supervision and Administration Bureau said that if a business is found to have the above-mentioned illegal activities, they can immediately call the 12345 government service convenience hotline or the 12315 consumer complaint hotline to report the situation.
