I bring you tales of a crime most foul. Selling counterfeit goods is taken very seriously by authorities, as it can lead to members of the public with no food or hygiene knowledge producing hazardous materials sold under the guide of a legitimate product.
This is not one of those times. Two men were arrested for selling counterfeit jars of organic cranberry sauce.
In trying to pass the fakes off as real, the two went so far as to produce fake invoices for another company, along with producing their own packaging stating that the sauce was organic when, in fact, it was not.
You can sleep safely now knowing that both men were given community orders and that Tesco’s intellectual property remains sound.
Reminds me of another two cases of counterfeit. One party was selling fake batteries and the other fake fireworks. After extensive litigation the first party was charged and the second was let off!
