“We had commenced withdrawal of the affected batches 220519.14.27 AC4 and 230519.15.15 ac4, prior to NAFDAC’s announcement and we are cooperating with the agency in its investigation.”
“We also regret the inconvenience this may have cause our consumers and have since requested consumers in possession of products with the stated batch numbers to return them to our nearest offices for replacement”
“We wish to confirm that there are no issues with other batches of our premium Eva Water even as we reassure our consumers of our commitment to highest quality standards, product safety and consumer satisfaction.”
