Here is an alcohol-based product that might sell briskly in Cullman County: Liquor With Viagra Added

Chinese police have begun an investigation into the production methods of two distillers in China’s southwestern Guangxi province. They are alleged to have spiked their alcohol-based products with the pharmaceutical grade impotence treatment drug: Viagra

The Liuzhou Food and Drug Administration (LFDA) has found that Guikun Alcohol Plant and Deshun Alcohol Plant located in the provincial city of Liuzhou in violation of the law. These two firms are reported to have been were sildenafil – more commonly known as Viagra – into three of their baijiu products.

Baijiu is a fiery grain liquor that commands high prices in China.

Law enforcement officers with Liuzhou Food and Drug Administration have confiscated 5,357 bottles of the suspect products. In addition, they have seized almost 40,000 ounces of raw alcohol and a batch of white powder labelled sildenafil, according to a statement that the (LFDA) released Saturday.

The case is now in the hands of local police.

Nationwide, food quality authorities have  discovered at least 15 companies have illegally added Sildenafil to their products. Another 32 companies are suspected of mixing the drug and its substitutes into their products.

Baijiu products are marketed as having health-preserving qualities, often overtly marketed for their anti-impotency properties and sexual health benefits.

Food safety is a chronic problem in China, and public anxiety over cases of fake or toxic food often spreads quickly.

In June, state media reported that Chinese customs had seized around $500 million USD worth of smuggled meat – some more than 40 years old and rotting – in the latest in a grim series of food safety scares across the country.

The reports said the expired frozen meat were mainly old food reserves from the United States, and were distributed to small cities on the mainland before they were sold to food stalls and small restaurants. Chinese customs named Hong Kong as a transit point for the smuggled meat.

In May 2013, police said they had broken up a crime ring that passed off more than $1.5 million in rat and small mammal meat as mutton.
