The Public Health Bureau of the Taichung City government seized more than 80,000 nutritional supplement capsules made with imported ginger powder that were contaminated with DIBP, a toxic chemical, a government official said Wednesday.

The capsules were found during a spot check at Ta Chien Co. in the central city.

According to an announcement made by Department of Health a day earlier, Ta Chien Co. bought one kilogram of the ginger powder from another trade firm named Hui Yang Co., who imported a shipment of the product in question from China's Hebo Natural Products Ltd. in June 2008.

The distributors of the capsules were informed to pull the products off the shelves, Mary Huang, director of the health bureau, said. She added that her bureau has also asked the related companies to trace the total amount of products that were already sold on the market.
