"Magic Nano“ will have its day in court

The District Attourney's office in Freiburg, Germany is investigating the makers of “Magic Nano” (see nano|public post from April 5, 2006) for inflicting bodily injury and violations of various food-related regulations, SWR Germany reports. Allegedly, the “Magic Nano” aerosol cans, which had been on the market for only a day, were labeled with a fake TÜV Süd approval sticker.
