The Director General of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye recently announced to the general public that Fan Milk’s Fanyogo Gin and Ginger, whose image had been circulating online, is neither known nor registered by the Agency.
The viral image showed the said Fanyogo Gin and Ginger to contain 12.5% alcohol.
According to a statement released by the NAFDAC DG, the Agency carried out a thorough investigation at the facility of Fan Milk, and confirmed that no such product was being developed by the company and no stock of packaging materials of Fanyogo Gin and Ginger were found in the premises.
Adeyeye added that Fan Milk issued a letter to NAFDAC saying that the image circulating in the news and social media had absolutely nothing to do with them and should be tagged as false, mischievous and malicious.
The NAFDAC statement further notes that Fan Milk has dissociated itself from the circulating image, as the product in it is not among any of the current Fan Milk’s products currently produced in Nigeria and anywhere within the West Africa Cluster.
The letter from Fan Milk, according to the NAFDAC DG, states that the images are the imaginations of some mischief makers that have seized the opportunity to distort the social media space.
Adeyeye urged members of the public to disregard the image, while promising to continue to ensure the safety, wholesomeness and quality of processed foods and other regulated products offered for sale to the public.
