The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has issued a warning to Nigerians regarding the sale of unwholesome Whippy Real Mayonnaise in the country. The discovery of the product was prompted by a consumer’s complaint and subsequently investigated by NAFDAC’s post-marketing surveillance unit in Ilorin, Kwara State.
The products were found to have been sourced locally from SNF FOODS Limited, a manufacturer in Onitsha, Anambra State. Random samples were taken from various batches of the product for laboratory analysis at NAFDAC’s facility. The outcomes of the laboratory analysis were deemed unsatisfactory. It was observed that despite being within their shelf life, the mayonnaise had become rancid and exhibited a different color from the original.
The substandard Whippy Real Mayonnaise, packed in 245g and 460g plastic bottles, was manufactured in June 2022 and is set to expire in December 2023. The specific batch numbers to watch out for are OA2GP220614A (Pack size 245g), OA2GP220611A, and OA2GP220617A (Pack size 460g), all with the A8-0700 NAFDAC registration number.
NAFDAC has instructed all zonal directors and state coordinators to conduct surveillance and remove the implicated batches of the unwholesome product from circulation. They also urge distributors, retailers, and consumers to be cautious and vigilant, refraining from consuming, selling, or distributing the affected Whippy Real Mayonnaise. It is essential to carefully check the authenticity and physical condition of the product before use.
Individuals who possess any of the mentioned batches of Whippy Real Mayonnaise are advised to submit their stock to the nearest NAFDAC office. If anyone has consumed this product and experienced any adverse reactions or events, seeking immediate medical advice from a qualified healthcare professional is strongly recommended.
