URC is fully aware of the Vietnam's Ministry of Health (MOH) ruling to recall one batch of C2 Lemon 350 ml (manufactured Feb 4, 2016) and one batch of Rong Do cup 240 ml (manufactured Nov 10, 2015), produced in URC Hanoi, one of its four facilities in the country. The rest of the URC products in Vietnam are not affected.
We are highly supportive of URC Vietnam's immediate and active retrieval of the specified products batches and desire to cooperate with the Vietnam MOH. URC is also fully aligned with the health authorities' mandate to protect consumers.
URC Vietnam has likewise proposed to the Vietnam MOH proactive measures including alignment on a common testing protocol and regular monitoring/checks of its products at its production site by the MOH itself.
URC is confident these measures will help the authorities in the exercise of their mandate.
URC is committed to be in full compliance with product safety standards and manufacture products that are of the highest quality as they have always been throughout the years.
In the Philippines, all URC products remain fully compliant with food standards. We shall be reaching out proactively to our customers and partners to assure them of this fact as well as answer questions they may have regarding the development in Vietnam.
