AUTHORITIES raided a store in Barangay Poblacion, Danao City, Cebu, past 11 a.m. Monday, September 11, for allegedly selling toxic mosquito coils.
Personnel of Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Regional Special Operations Group (Rsog) and Danao City Police Station seized more than a hundred boxes of BaoMa black mosquito repellent coils from United General Merchandise.
BaoMa is one of the China-made products banned by the FDA for posing danger to public health.
Senior Inspector Windell Abellana, the Rsog team leader, said they were tapped by FDA to investigate the store last week.
