Paper Shortage Strikes Taiwan Amid Pricing Panic"
... "The run on
toilet paper highlights the high price sensitivity of the Taiwanese market,
where wages have stagnated for years while housing prices have gone up."
The court of Taiwan found out RT Mart is the one starting to send out a fake message ― imminent price increases as its promotion tactics to mislead Taiwanese consumers to rush to stores to stock up on the household staple... This abnormal movements in market prices led to some other companies working together to unfairly drive up prices, and the imbalance of supply and demand of toilet paper. RT Mart received penalty fine NT$3.5 million which is the fourth issue till 2018. French Auchan holds largest shareholding ratio of RT Mart, Taiwan's Ruentex Group second about 30 %.

Taiwanese government found Costco and RT-mart sold beef/steaks containing residue of banned chemical stuff ― Paylean, lean-meat-enhancing drugs (belong to B-agonist, i.e., Ractopamine, Clenbuterol, etc ).
Taiwanese health authorities ordered Costco and RT-mart to remove all remaining beef products (that tested positive for Paylean) from shelves, but Costco ( 6 stores/branches ) had already sold out almost all of those beef/steaks .
Why can those beef be imported to Taiwan ? Taiwan's government confessed they didn't check every box.
How can people tell which is dangerous beef/steak? The answer is you can't tell just by their look.
