    Police find animal waste in counterfeit makeup -- so it's not such a bargain after all
    https://www.thedenverchannel.com/new...gain-after-all

    "The Los Angeles Police Department says it confiscated counterfeit makeup that tested positive for high levels of bacteria and animal waste.

    The department seized $700,000 worth of bootleg cosmetics on Thursday after raiding 21 locations in Santee Alley, a Los Angeles fashion district, said LAPD Capt. Marc Reina.

    "Those feces will just basically somehow get mixed into the product they're manufacturing in their garage or in their bathroom -- wherever they're manufacturing this stuff," Detective Rick Ishitani told CNN affiliate KABC."

    "The LAPD was tipped off by the brand-name companies, which received complaints from consumers who said they had rashes and bumps after using their products. The complainants had one thing in common: They bought the product in the Los Angeles fashion district."

    "Six people were arrested Thursday and are expected to be charged with trademark violations of major brands.

    Another 15 people are served with cease and desist orders.

    Ishitani said the raid was also meant to “educate the public of the health and safety concerns of purchasing counterfeit cosmetics.”

    Capt. Reina ended his tweet with “The best price is not always the best deal!”"
