THE Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has declared local Lucky Me! products safe for consumption.
The FDA decision followed recent findings by an FDA-accredited international independent laboratory that Lucky Me! passed the standards for ethylene oxide (EtO).
“This result is consistent with our position that our products are and have always been safe. We are committed to being a source of high-quality food products and will remain so,” Monde Nissin Corporation said in a statement.
Monde Nissin also passed several rigid inspections by FDA teams sent to find out if EtO was present in the local Lucky Me! plants.
“We fully cooperated with the FDA in this effort at establishing food safety and were declared totally compliant with all the rules and requirements needed for the production of Lucky Me!,” it added.
