Herbalife Nutrition announced that it will not hesitate to take the necessary steps against individuals who will use its products and brand name for illegal activities.
The global nutrition brand issued the warning after the Bureau of Customs (BoC) in Clark, Pampanga discovered 11 kilos of marijuana that were concealed in fake Herbalife Formula 1 tin canisters. The original Herbalife Formula 1 comes in plastic canisters.
“Unfortunately, criminal enterprises use popular household products every day as a way to conceal their activity. We take cases of illegal use of our brand assets (product label) for illegal and nefarious purposes very seriously and will take the necessary steps to protect our interests,” Herbalife Nutrition said in a statement.
