VENTURA – When California Department of Public Health (CDPH) investigators went undercover at the Ventura College Foundation Marketplace Swap Meet November 5, 2016, they discovered and purchased prescription medication being sold without a proper license.

“Some of the drugs seized were recalled drugs and have undeclared pharmaceutical ingredients that may cause significant health risks,” said George Tiongson, president of the California Association of Food and Drug Investigators.   “I’m glad we were able to pull them from these vendors.”

CDPH investigators, along with investigators from the Ventura County District Attorney’s Consumer and Environmental Protection Unit and the Ventura County Pharmaceutical Crimes Task Force, seized hundreds of medications including Amoxicillin , Vermox, Terramycin, Lamisil, Artibion, Gelmicin, Rumoquin, Synalar and Reumofan.

They cited four people for selling dangerous drugs without a license.  Cited were:

Juvenita Perez Mejia, 58, of Simi Valley

Maria Ponce De Leon Reyes, 66, of Santa Paula

Raymundo Perez Sandoval, 61, of Simi Valley

Deisy Magalay Flores Portero, 31, of Los Angeles.

The medication purchased by undercover investigators was misbranded, meaning it was not designed for sale or distribution in the United States.   The four cited are scheduled to appear in court for arraignment on December 2, 2016.
