CityNews – FDA deputy secretary-general Paisarn Dunkum called the products “fake food” and warned wrongdoers could face fines of up to 5,000 baht or prison sentences of up to 10 years. The agency joined the Public Health Ministry in campaigning for a safe and healthy Vegetarian Festival, and Dr Paisarn urged people to use their own judgement when buying vegetarian products.


Churiphon Bunyawongwirot, deputy chief of the Department of Medical Sciences, advised consumers to avoid so-called vegetarian products without FDA-approved labels because “they all have animal DNA.”
