4 arrested for selling expired drugs

HONG Kong police have arrested four employees of a drug manufacturer for allegedly lying about the expiration dates on more than 200 over-the-counter medicines, officials said yesterday.

Marching Pharmaceutical Ltd has had its license suspended for one month while authorities look into claims the company was selling medicines with expiration dates that went beyond a product's shelf life, a health department spokesman said on condition of anonymity, citing internal policy.

The spokesman said the products being recalled are low-risk drugs and that there was no immediate risk to human health.
