The Supreme People's Court (SPC) spokesperson has stated the celebrities will also be prosecuted for criminal liability for producing and spreading deceptive advertising with the identity of advertising managers or releasers, reported China Daily.

The SPC and the Supreme People's Procuratorate recently issued interpretations that specify crimes related to food safety and set standards for the punishment for these crimes.
