The China Food and Drug Administration (yes, that exists), has warned customers about purchasing online ‘mock blood drinks,’ which have become a hit due to popular shows like ‘Vampire Diaries.’ They warn that the labels are often false (which, considering that the drinks come in blood bags labelled with blood types, we certainly hope so). Global Post reports:
CFDA warned consumers in an online statement on Monday not to buy these drinks, many of which are named “vampire blood drink” or “blood energy supply” and even have ABO blood types on their package.
“Such products have never been approved by the authorities and most of their labels are falsified,” said the statement, adding such products are very popular among young people.
It said CFDA had banned sales of similar products and has ordered online platforms to review online vendors more strictly.
