Chinese Company Sells Unsafe Vaccines, Arrests Made

Changsheng Chinese Vaccine Maker Supervised by the Police

Both President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang have demanded urgent attention to the matter, underscoring the government's concern over public outrage about a series of public health scandals, especially ones concerning children.

"We always say kids are the nation's future, but if we can't ensure the safety of such a future, what does the future hold for us?" asked Ms Huo Xiaoling, 37, who has a one-year-old daughter who received a vaccine made by Changsheng.

The company was fined last week for having produced and sold low-quality vaccines for infants, and fabricating production and inspection data for a rabies vaccine, sparking an outcry on Chinese social media.

Even though no receiver of the vaccine has been hurt, Chine regulators made a decision to order Changsheng to recall the product and halt the production.

Because of this scandal, the healthcare was sacrificed for the day of Monday and Changsheng's Shenzhen-listed shares suffer from a drop of $1.8 billion.

Trading in its shares will be suspended on Wednesday and resume on Thursday. But the firm was found to have sold 252,600 sub-standard DPT vaccines, a mandatory vaccine in China to inoculate children against diphtheria, whooping cough and tetanus, to Shandong province past year.

She also made public her struggles with childhood bullying, bipolar and eating disorders , self-harm and addiction. But contrary to TMZ's reports, a source close to the star tells ET Canada it was not a heroin related overdose.

The Changsheng case is the latest in a slew of scandals that has plagued China's pharmaceutical industry in recent years.

The administration said that the vaccines were insufficient but not risky. "But unlike in cases of child abuse, the vaccine scandals involve layers and layers of broken regulators and interest groups". Earlier, in 2016, Chinese police busted a gang for selling around $90 million worth of illegal vaccines on the black market. But when problems are found, the regulator must take action. She has previously been identified as Gao Junfang.

The country's top graft watchdog, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), also said it had begun an investigation into potential corruption at the firm.

The firm said it also faces the risk of being delisted due to an investigation by China's securities regulator into suspected violations of information disclosure.

Changsheng is China's second largest producer of rabies and chicken pox vaccines, according to its 2017 annual report.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a media statement concerning the rabies vaccine incident in China, noting that the regulatory control of vaccines is "critically important".
