Parents encouraged to avoid fake baby products

Parents have been encouraged, for the health of their family, to avoid buying counterfeit baby products.

Panamex Pacific (PNG) Limited, a major distributor for PNG made products including Anchor, Softlove, and Was Was, is encouraging the public to start buying genuine baby products.

Panamex marketing manager Peter Narayan said they’ve recently received a lot of complaints from consumers about counterfeit baby products like diapers being sold in shops.

Narayan urged parents to look for prominent brands as counterfeit products can cause injuries to your babies.

“Counterfeit diapers are different, they feel different, the quality is low and aren’t that stretchable,” he said.

He also encouraged shop owners to avoid selling counterfeit baby products because it is illegal and the law is in place to abide by.

Panamex is also running a campaign to get parents to buy quality products with a competition to win a Toyota 6th Element Hilux and a year’s supply of Softlove Smart pants for your baby.

To stand a chance of winning one of the prizes, participants must purchase any Softlove Diapers or Smart pants.

Simply write your name, address and phone number on the back of the purchase receipt and drop into the entry bins provided in stores.

This competition started on 23 November 2015 and ends on 20 February 2016. The winner will be announced on 4 March.
