Shanghai: Infant food makers fined


Shanghai-based infant food maker Abbott won a lawsuit against three Engnice-branded infant cereal producers in Hunan and Jiangxi provinces and one related product package producer in Hunan. The four defendants were fined 1 million yuan ($159,900) in compensation for violating Abbott's design patent. A court in Beijing also ruled that the four defendants should stop producing and selling the infant cereal and must destroy finished and semifinished bottles and moulds.
