Fake spark plugs - is nothing safe anymore?

So, I recently changed the plugs in my CTX with a set of NGK plugs I bought off Amazon since none of the local auto parts places had the correct part, and then I see this article today: https://autoweek.com/article/diy/bew...might-be-fakes

Now I'm worried that I might have put some kind of garbage Chinese knockoffs in my bike. A while back, I had a scare from using a HiFlo oil filter, and now this. Sigh, I think I'm going to have to start flying to Japan once a year to pick up parts directly from Honda.

If fake networking gear can be done.. a simple spark plug should be no problem.
