Fake Fire Extinguishers Seized in China

Posted on October 2, 2012

China is all too well-known for its imitation products. From branded shirts to even food items, the Chinese continue to soar in this industry.

In fact, they are discovering ways to replicate almost everything. And I mean everything.

In Chengdu, police officials recently seized almost ten-thousand fake fire extinguishers.

How were these faked?

Instead of releasing the normal fire-stopping powdery agent they’re supposed to release, the fake ones spit out flour.

A test was conducted to see the difference between both the original and the fake ones. The results were obvious and immediate. The real thing extinguished flames in the blink of an eye. However, the imitation was a big failure. It actually took two of the fake fire extinguishers to put out the fire, in essence simply smothering the fire to death.
