Chinese Pills- Osteo Paracetamol


Just bought these from Good Price Pharmacy, Paracetamol Osteo Tab( distributed by AFT), in lie of Panadol Brand, save a dollar. Then today I read the fine print " Made in China". I have had three and havn't cacked it, but put the fourth one back into the bottle, note not a packet. Cant believe this stuff, especially when the likes of Blackmores are exporting to China.

I rang Panadol, theirs are made in Spain and packed in Australia. All pharmacy medicine is checked by Theraputic goods Australia before being allowed for resale BUT. Somehow drugs do not have to declare Country of Origin either. I have invited AFT for a comment.

cheers Craig

Homebrand paracetamol has the kangaroo symbol on it and also the packet states "made in Australia" also half the price of the Panadol brand.

Good Luck.

 Good old Woolworths.   

 EDIT...they also carry Cedel Australian made toothpaste which is usually the cheapest and hidden on the bottom shelf. I cannot figure out why people prefer the common "old" brands like colgate etc which cost up to 3 times the Cedel price especially when they are foreign made.

Regards

Hi Denis,

You have reminded me to buy some Cedel.  I saw a some comments by Choice some years that all toothpastes are much the same and superlative claims had no basis.

I have been preferring Colgate because it contains triclosan, which should get rid of some bacteria.
