SEOUL, Aug. 8 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's drug watchdog said Thursday that it has temporally suspended sales of several dozen anti-diarrheal medications, the first such move in more than two decades.

The move by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety comes as Dongwha Pharm was found to have used a combination of two different strains of lactobacillus in making Lacteol than the one that was originally approved by the government in 1988.
