Headed by Regional Director Jocelyn L.B. Blanco, the agency ran a bulldozer over electrical appliances, bulbs, Christmas lights, and lighters.

Said items were surrendered by 37 establishments that were likewise ordered to pay a fine for violating the Product Standards Law.

The activity aimed to inform consumers not to purchase uncertified products since these are unsafe to use and may cause damage to their lives and properties.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
