The DFA said the products (Geng Nian An Pian; Liu Wei Di Huang Pian; Jin Kui Shen Qi Pian; Mingmu Dinhuang Wan and Jingxin Menocare Essence) were available from alternative therapists across the country.

 

“The products contain several dangerous plants that may cause various side effects such as damage to the central nervous system and hormonal influences,” the DFA said.
