The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has directed the Nigerian Bottling Company Limited to recall batches of one of its popular products, Eva Premium Table Water due to public complaints of impurity in the water.
The health agency on its Twitter handle on Friday said the decision to recall the Eva Premium Table Water 75cl is as a result of precautionary step pending investigation by the agency.
According to the tweets, the company had voluntarily reported to NAFDAC on June 20 that the colour of the product changes from colourless to light green and there is a presence of particles in two lots.
“The affected Eva Premium Table Water 75cl was produced between 22nd and 23rd May 2019 at Nigerian Bottling Company Limited, Asejire, Ibadan, Oyo State.”
The Senate noted that the scheme has a presidential mandate of achieving Universal Health Coverage by 2015 but “has failed in this regard as available information shows that it currently boasts of a little above 6 million enrollees even as at the middle of 2019.”
