Quantities are reaching unwary hands labelled as biologically active additives, disguising a substance blamed for poisoning and claiming the lives of those using it, Anna Popova, chief state sanitary doctor and head of Russia's consumer rights agency Rospotrebnadzor, said Thursday.
Buyers are being fooled, the federal officer told ruling United Russia party's Patriotic Platform, discussing a bill toughening punishment for selling false and unregistered medicines.
“The bill is extremely topical and important," Popova said, citing children who have succumbed to the drug across several regions.
“These substances are sold under absolutely different names...disguised as biologically active additives and not though legal trading,” she said.
Counterfeits such as these are targets under the new law being proposed, she said.
