NBC voluntarily notified NAFDAC of two batches of Eva Water (75cl) produced from May 22-23, 2019 in our Asejire Plant with batch number 220519.14.27 AC4 and 230519.15.15 AC4 which did not meet our quality standards. Other batches of our premium Eva Water are safe to drink.
Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC) is aware of Public Alert No. 0011/2019 issued by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).
As noted in the alert, on 20th of June 2019 NBC voluntarily notified NAFDAC of two batches of Eva Water (75cl) produced from May 22-23, 2019 in our Asejire Plant (one of our 8 manufacturing plants across the country), which did not meet our quality standards.
We had commenced withdrawal of the affected batches which are 220519.14.27 AC4 and 230519.15.15 AC4 (these numbers can be found around the neck of the bottle), prior to the NAFDAC announcement and are cooperating with the Agency in their investigation. We regret the inconvenience this issue may have caused our consumers, and we request consumers in possession of products with the stated batch numbers to return them to our nearest offices or distributors/dealers for replacement.
We confirm that other batches of our premium Eva Water are safe to drink and reassure our consumers of our commitment to highest quality standards, product safety and consumer satisfaction.
