Appliance shop in Vietnam caught displaying fake goods

Inspections in this week by Ho Chi Minh City authorities at Ideas appliance shopping center found counterfeit items on display without certificates of origin.


The Ideas shopping center, located at 141A-B Cach Mang Thang Tam street in District 1, was caught displaying 361 electric irons with trademark Hitoshi – Hi 588-200v.

According to the investigation team, the items were without certificates of origin or country of origin details printed on the product.

The goods have shape and model similar to those under the Philips registered trademark, a long-standing and recognized manufacturer in the Vietnamese market.

Local authorities said they were still ironing out the details of the case, as the investigation is ongoing.
