"The Food and Drug Administration warned the public against purchasing and consuming some food products and supplements, as these items have no corresponding Certificates of Product Registration."
FDA warns the general public NOT TO PURCHASE AND CONSUME the following unregistered food products & food supplements:
1. RENO BRAND Liver Spread
2. MIRACLE WHITE Advance Whitening Capsules Food Supplement
3. TURCUMIN 100% Natural & Standardized Turmeric Curcumin
4. DESA Spanish Style Bangus in Corn Oil
5. SAMANTHA’S DIPS AND SAUCE Spanish Sardines Paste Sauce
The Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) announcement that Reno Liver Spread is among those without registration from their agency was not just a surprise but more of a shock.
We've been using this product even during my younger years. I literally grew up with it as one of my favorite sandwich spread. If you'll ask me to choose between peanut butter or the liver spread, I will without any hesitation pick the latter. This has been a must ingredient everytime we cook kaldereta, menudo, etc.
I would like to know since when did Reno never had been registered? Was it from the very beginning, or does FDA actually mean just an expired or nonrenewed registration?
I think the brand has been around longer than Juan Ponce Enrile, it is a staple ingredient to many Filipino recipes. Are they sure, or they just want to promote another liver spread brand for consumers?
If they have not been registered ever since, then what took FDA so long? This only shows how incompetent FDA is!
We support Reno even if it has no lavish commercial, ad or any campaign to boost its sales. Though there are other brands out there it is our top choice. It is one of our most trusted by brands! We will only get another brand if there's no Reno around.
However, this would also mean 90% of the food being sold by cottage industries under the current situation would have to be banned as they wouldn’t have an FDA registration.
Caveat Emptor is expected for backyard food products. If FDA is issuing a warning just for compliance, they should just make a separate issuance, and not a public health warning but just a disclaimer.
Registration to a government agency is just a formality. We have more trust on Reno than the government. People trusting Reno Liver Spread more than DFA says something a lot about our trust issues with government. Yet, they insist that they are not in the position to lie eventhough there has been a multitude of instances when government officials have broken our trust by breaking their word or promise.
"Kay Reno pa rin, babalik sigaw ng damdamin. Kay Reno pa rin sasaya, bulong ng puso kooooo lol"
We stand by Reno Liver Spread!
