Nigeria’s National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has vehemently refuted the claims circulating on social media regarding the presence of plastic and harmful contaminants in Golden Penny Semovita.
Categorically dismissing these allegations, NAFDAC has labeled them as false and devoid of any foundation, asserting that they are nothing more than a fabricated attempt to tarnish the reputation of the product.
In a press release issued to journalists on Monday, NAFDAC emphasized that it had been closely monitoring the situation and conducting rigorous tests to ensure consumer safety. The agency affirmed that Golden Penny Semovita complies with all established quality and safety standards, and there is no evidence whatsoever to substantiate the claims being circulated.
Furthermore, NAFDAC urged the public to be cautious and discerning when engaging with information on social media, emphasizing the need to rely on verified sources and official statements to avoid being misled by unverified and potentially damaging content.
The agency reassured consumers that it remains committed to its mandate of safeguarding public health by ensuring that only safe and certified products are available in the Nigerian market. NAFDAC encouraged individuals with any concerns or suspicions regarding food and drug safety to report them promptly to the appropriate authorities.
