In food safety cases, the most common occurrence is the falsification of counterfeiting or the addition of things that are not permitted by the competent authority. In the face of such violations, administrative punishments are generally adopted first. Only when it is harmful to human health, the pattern of punishment is treated. It was only after the amendment of the Food Safety Law in 2013 that it was directly penalized for violations of this law, and the subsequent amendments aggravated the sentence up to seven years in prison.
