Nesquik in the Philippine is Safe, Says Health Chief

The Philippine FDA Chief, Kenneth Hartigan has informed, on Thursday, that Nesquik in the Philippines is completely safe and people should be aware about the same, he said. The report finds that he has been asking to stop alarming people about the local product.

The product was actually being doubted to be contaminated with salmonella virus. Since, some other Nesquik products have been suspected for the same and Nestle USA has recalled some of these. But, Go was quoted as saying, "It is not the same product voluntarily recalled by Nesquik in the United States. That is a different product, completely different from the one we have here".

The recall includes 10.9-, 21.8- and 40.7-ounce canisters, which had been produced early October. And Nestle says that the recall of the chocolate drink product was being made amid the recall by Omaya Inc., its ingredient supplier, of ingredients calcium carbonate.

However, Go says that the chocolate drink products from the US, which are found contaminated, are in metal canisters. Whereas, the ones made in the Philippine are in plastic containers. Nesquik chocolate powder was tested after the news of recall by local health authorities, who found that the product was salmonella-free.
