The National Regulator for
Compulsory Specifications (NRCS) has announced the recall of the Domestos
Extended Germ Kill. This specific
product is a 'grey' imported product manufactured in the United Kingdom.
According to South African
regulations, disinfectant products need to be registered with the NRCS before
they can be sold on shelf, however in this case a local retailer imported the
product directly from the UK and hence the recall of the product.
In South Africa, Unilever manufactures and markets Domestos
Thick Bleach.This local product is registered with the NRCS
and is compliant with South African Regulations. There is no consumer safety issue
with this product, the only issue is that all such
products should be registered with the relevant local authorities before they
are sold locally.
Unilever remains committed
to providing branded products and services which consistently offer value in
terms of price and quality, and which are safe for their intended use.
