ABSTRACT
The article reports on the fight against food counterfeiting and contamination in China. Pet foods and drugs imported from China were discovered to be contaminated and counterfeited. The author notes that the enforcement of intellectual property rights (IPR) in the country is underdeveloped that drug makers are not offered recourse against IPR infringements. Businesses, like Pfizer, continue the fight against counterfeiters as they do business in other countries.
