[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]Consumers unprotected

I bought sesame seed oil from a well-known company and found pieces of glass in the bottom of the bottle. An employee of the manufacturer said it was probably the mistake of the contractor that supplied the bottles.
I visited the Korea Consumer Protection Board and requested an inspection, but they told me it would cost several million won. I asked for another option, and they told me to report it to a hygiene office or a district office, which would fine the company. There is no compensation for consumers of bad food and only light punishment for the manufacturer. The government lacks consideration for the public’s health.
