Advice to consumers from Global Foodmate, when buying imported foods: 

1. Check Chinese label: do not buy imported products without a Chinese label on the package.

       3. Always buy imported foods from legal distribution channels: do not easily trust abroad online stores(Hai Tao) and do not buy from individual buyers (Daigou).
