HEART CENTRE: SUCH ACTIVITIES ARE NOT ALLOWED
A National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) spokesman said that the unauthorised sale and promotion of products and services at its premises is prohibited.
The spokesman told The New Paper: "Patients and the public are advised to alert our staff if they come across such activities... NHCS has also stepped up... efforts to deter such unauthorised activities..."
Meanwhile, a Herbalife spokesman said the company was unaware that its distributors have been touting at the lobby of the NHCS.
In an e-mail, Herbalife said it will investigate the matter.
It said: "Should there be any suspected case of violation of the company's rules of conduct, we will act accordingly.
"Herbalife products provide good nutrition to everyone and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
"This message is emphasised... to our independent distributors."
