(ECNS) -- A seller of Japanese sake was ordered to pay 10 times the purchase price of the liquor to a customer for failing to put Chinese labels on the product, Beijing Youth Daily reported.

A man surnamed Li bought 25 bottles of Japanese sake from a company and then filed a lawsuit at a court in Beijing's Haidian District because the drink had no Chinese labels as required for imported products in China.

Li said he paid 6,500 yuan (about 0)for the sake on June 1, 2016 but couldn't find any Chinese information about the product.

The seller violated food safety standards without a Chinese label and should pay 10 times the cost as compensation to the customer, who could also return the drinks to the dealer and receive a refund, according to the court.

A judge said Chinese labels or instructions, including information on country of origin and the contact of agents should be attached to imported products according to Chinese law.

It was also urged that customers retain proof of purchases to safeguard their interests.
