Residents in Sa Kaew called in soldiers to investigate an illegal orange juice factory after children and adults fell sick.

They raided the family business in the Wang Somboon district where they found 50 year old house owner Nakorn Sananram filling bottles with an orange concoction that bore little resemblance to its billing of orange juice reported Thairath.

It contained colorings, orange juice flavorings and only a little bit of real juice.

Nakorn said that it was just a family business he had been doing for a couple of years. He was in the process of applying for a license, he said, saying loads of other people were doing the same so he decided to follow suit.

Samples of the liquid were sent to the local hospital lab Wednesday as trading standards decide what action to take.
