    Why not just buy the real imitation stuff from the likes of Home Bargains instead 'Hair and Head' shampoo...nobody is going to fake an imitation

    Few days ago the kinder surprise was going for 29p and it had Chinese writing on it plus it tasted different. So I'm not surprised at this news!!

    Actually chocolate by the same brand manufacturer can vary in differing countries without it being 'fake'. So in the Kinder Surprise Chinese example, although it tasted different does not necessarily mean it is fake. It could be produced under license from Ferrero.

    If your Norwegian chocolate bar had Norwegian writing on it and tasted the same as it did in Norway then clearly it was imported from Norway.

    Take for example Cadbury, in the US you can buy imported Cadbury from the UK and obviously it tastes the same. However there is also Cadbury America that produce chocolate too under license...and that tastes rank.

    Same can be applied to brewers etc....check the labels there to see if drinks are imports or if 'brewed under license'

    You've got to wonder how Home Bargains and B&M are able to sell products dirt cheap, they're either fake or they've been imported from a cheap country. Im pretty sure every product sold in the UK has to have English written ingredients/product information on the packaging, I can confirm stuff from Home Bargains does not

    Didn't know 99p Stores and B&M sold fake products, I thought these big companies would use reliable distributors. So thanks for sharing OP.

    You may have missed them in English, I'd guess they were there somewhere. English might not be the prominent language if they are from another country.

    Yeah, if they bought the stock from someone without checking if they are an authorisesd distributor, the blame is on them for the fakes getting to the customers.

    According to fake britain, the stores were treated as victims.
    It was on yesterday, not sure if that was a repeat or the original. I hardly watch it.

    Bought shampoo in Boots today instead of Savers to compare. Same stuff, but in Savers it's half the price normally it is in Boots. Was BOGOF today which made it the same price. Have had a slightly sore scalp but put it down to other things. I guess I am worrying now. We will see.

    If it is different, I suspect it might take some time to recover so do not expect an immediate difference.

    Poundstretcher sued for ‘selling fake bottles of Head & Shoulders’ as big brands launch fight against ‘copycat’ discounters
    thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto…ece

    PROCTER & GAMBLE has filed a High Court action against Poundstretcher and two suppliers, accusing them of selling counterfeit Head & Shoulders shampoo and Ariel laundry powder.

    The American consumer goods giant alleges that the discount retailer and two wholesalers, Home and Beauty and J&S Brands, traded in bogus products and infringed its trademarks between 2013 and 2014. P&G is seeking damages and has demanded to be told the origins of the imitation goods.

    Poundstretcher and Home and Beauty have not yet filed defences to the claim, which was brought last month. J&S has submitted a defence, saying it “does not admit” to having bought and sold fake products. It “believes” its haircare goods were not counterfeit, although it “is now aware that the marketplace was in 2013 awash” with bogus products.
