The Government has acted swiftly after discovering that products on sale at the Aesthetic and Anti-Ageing congress held at the Grimaldi Forum last week contained human placenta extracts.

Having been alerted to the fact, a Government inspector was sent on Thursday, April 5, the first day of the congress and succeeded in having the offending products removed from sale, local French daily Monaco-Matin reports. However, the Japanese company selling the medicines and food products had hidden supplies, and after the inspector left these were again offered for sale to the public.

On Friday, April 6, authorities visited again and re-removed the products from sale, despite attempts at physical obstruction. In total, more then 2,300 boxes were seized by the Monaco authorities.

Monaco’s Minister of Health and Social Affairs is anticipating legal procedures against the company involved, but not against the organisers of the Congress, which include the University of Nice.
