Chinese celebrities to be punished for advertising unsafe food products [Xinhua]

BEIJING, May 5 (Xinhua) — Celebrities will be punished for advertising unsafe food products in accordance with laws, a judicial official has said.

The celebrities will also be prosecuted for criminal liability for producing and spreading deceptive advertising with the identity of advertising managers or releasers, said spokesman of the Supreme People’s Court (SPC) Sun Jungong on Saturday.

The SPC and the Supreme People’s Procuratorate recently issued interpretations that specify crimes related to food safety and set standards for the punishment for these crimes, a move to combat increasingly severe food scandals.
