The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control NAFDAC has certified that Golden Penny Semovita and other Semolina products do not contain plastic or any similar contaminants after a social media video showed a woman washing Golden Penny Semovita in a sieve using cold water with the claim that the residue she got after sieving was plastic.

The Director General of NAFDAC, Moji Adeyeye in a statement yesterday noted that a similar video was shown in 2020 which the agency had addressed at the time, adding that they confirmed that the claim was not true after appropriate analytical testing in its internationally accredited laboratories.

The agency added that Semovita contained the expected components plus the required Vitamin A, describing the claim in the viral video as misleading.

Adeyeye maintained that there is no cause for apprehension by consumers as such approved products are manufactured in line with Good Manufacturing Practices and in compliance with the Nigerian Industrial Standards, which are continuously monitored by NAFDAC.
