Public Alert No. 024/2023 – Caution Regarding Unfit Whippy Real Mayonnaise
The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) wishes to inform the public about the presence of unwholesome Mayonnaise brand (Whippy Mayonnaise) being sold in Nigeria.
The discovery of this product came to light after NAFDAC’s post marketing surveillance unit in Ilorin, Kwara State, received and investigated a consumer complaint.
Upon thorough investigation, it was revealed that the products in question were locally sourced from the manufacturer SNF FOODS Limited, based in Onitsha, Anambra State. Random samples were collected from various batches of the product for laboratory analysis at NAFDAC’s Laboratory.
The results of the laboratory analysis conducted by the Agency showed unsatisfactory outcomes. The affected products, though still within their shelf life, had become rancid and displayed a color different from the original color of mayonnaise.
In response to this, all zonal directors and state coordinators have been directed to conduct surveillance and recall the implicated batches of the unwholesome product.
