Nigerian Bottling Company has commenced withdrawal of the affected batches of its Eva Premium Table Water 75cl which did not meet quality standards.
The two batches of Eva Water (75cl) 220519.14.27 AC4 and 230519.15.15 AC4 were Manufactured in Asejire Plant Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC).
With this, the company is requesting consumers in possession of the products with the stated batch numbers to return them to their nearest offices or distributors/dealers for replacement.
This does not mean that there are issues with other batches of premium Eva Water.
NBC in a statement issued by Ekuma Eze , Director, Public Affairs and Communications confirmed that there are no issues with other batches of premium Eva Water.
The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) had recently directed Nigerian Bottling Company to order the recall of Eva Premium Table Water 75cl Due to Change in Colour and Presence of Particles.
The action was a precautionary step pending investigation by the Agency.
The company voluntarily reported to NAFDAC on June 20, 2019, a change in colour of the product from colourless to light green and presence of particles in two lots.
According to NBC, “We had commenced withdrawal of the affected batches which are 220519.14.27 AC4 and 230519.15.15 AC4, prior to the NAFDAC announcement and are cooperating with the Agency in their investigation.”
NBC, regretted whatever inconvenience the issue might have caused the consumers, and however reassured them of the company’s continued commitment to producing goods that are of good quality.
