Caixin reports that at least 22 people were hospitalized after consuming two brands of fake whiskey at a bar in Heyuan in the southern province of Guangdong last week. According to a notice issued by the China Food and Drug Administration, the counterfeit products contained methanol. The two contaminated alcohol brands — both owned by Shandong-based Penglai Weiyade Wine — had also been sold in other regions such as Henan, Hainan, and Guizhou provinces.
