  1. Antibacteria International Co., Ltd. posted the claim “absorbability 30 times better than other activated carbon face masks available on the market” and “use of a special technology to produce activated carbon with absorbability 30 times better than all masks available and hi-tech structural design enabling our masks to absorb volatile organic solvents (such as formaldehyde, toluene and other environmental hormones), chemical compounds and unpleasant odors” when marketing its anti-bacterium and anti-VOC activated carbon face masks. The wording was a false and misleading representation with regard to quality of product and could also affect transaction decisions in violation of Article 21 (1) of the Fair Trade Act.
