Is Amul selling spoil products? – Fact Check busts the claims
A video showing contaminated Amul lassi is getting viral on social media. In the video, it can be seen that the silver pinhole is punctured and the liquid inside the packet has developed some kind of fungus and it looks definitely unfit to consume.
Many social media users are uploading this video while criticizing Amul Company.
A user posted the video and writes, “Make sure to check Amul lassi or any liquid packet before drinking it. No matter how big a brand it is, be sure to check once. If your body is healthy, the world will be there. Be aware, be alert, and be careful.” (English Translation)
Many other users too shared the video with the same claim.
A user named Vikrant shared the video on Twitter tagging Amul and wrote: “This video is doing rounds on WA. Look closer & you’ll see that each box is tampered with i.e. small pinhole is punctured on the silver seal & the Lassi has been left out till it spoilt video is clearly made with t
he intent to defame. AMUL must take serious action!”
Just below the tweet of Vikrant FMCG giant Amul issued a clarification stating the viral video is “a fake message being forwarded on WhatsApp and social media platforms” about the inferior quality of its product.
Amul’s statement posted on Twitter read: “This is for your kind information that a fake message is being forwarded on WhatsApp and social media platforms regarding the inferior quality of Amul Lassi. The creator of the video has not contacted us for clarification, nor the location has been disclosed.”
It further mentions that Amul Lassi undergoes strict quality checks for product quality and packaging integrity. The statement said: “We wish to assure you that Amul Lassi is made at our state-of-the-art dairies and undergoes strict quality checks for product quality and integrity of packaging”.
In the clarification, it was also mentioned in bold letters not to buy any package that is not sealed as it often warns its customers.
The clarification from Amul considered that the video is fake as the silver pinhole already seems broke, which may have resulted in the spoiling of the liquid lassi, and according to Amul’s caution customers shall not buy anything whose seal is broken.
