Food supplement Tercon Skin care failed to contain 98% of promised B2 vitamin


The Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority (CAFIA) performs intensive inspections of safety and quality of food supplements on regular basis. Inspectors recently detected adulteration of an extraordinary extent. Product TERCON Skin Care, B vitamin with use by date by 1st January 2018 produced by: TERCON s.r.o.; Sudoměřská 901/24, 130 00 Prague 3 is concerned. Among others, the producer indicated on the labelling that the product contained 0.5 mg/1 capsule, however, laboratory analysis showed that the product contained 0.00804 mg/1 capsule only. The real content of vitamin B2 thus comprised only 1.61% of the content indicated on the labelling.

CAFIA took the sample in question at the premises of company PHOENIX lékárenský velkoobchod, a.s. in Prague – Hostivař and immediately banned placing of the defective lot on the market. CAFIA will initiate an administrative procedure on imposition of a fine with the inspected person.
