SON Confiscates Bottles Of Fake Mayonnaise In Enugu

The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) have confiscated 400 bottles of fake, substandard and injurious Mayonnaise cream in Abakpa-Nike Community Market in the Enugu metropolis.

Mr Paul Iorkyaa, the Public Relations Officer of SON in Enugu, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.

He said the raid on the market was carried out on Friday, after a complaint of fake and injurious BAMA mayonnaise, from a consumer on 13th July, to SON Markets Desk Office in Enugu State

Iorkyaa, further noted that during the raid, it was discovered that different brands of foreign Mayonnaise with no certification mark, traceability and some of which had expired were relabelled with the fake label of BAMA Mayonnaise.

The raid, also gave room for a brief sensitisation to the need to patronise only products certified by SON under its MANCAP and SONCAP Scheme with display of MANCAP logo of some certified products.

The PRO added that further investigation was still on over the matter.
