New Delhi, June 23: Days after Dettol soaps were found sub-standard in the lab test, the company has clarified about the same.
The company Reckitt Benckiser (India) Limited has denied the charge that soaps could be of sub-standard quality as it goes through a series of rigorous tests before being launched in the market.
Asserting the quality of the product, an official statement said, "We confirm that Dettol Soap is 100% safe to use. We take this seriously and our quality tests note the batch weight is 125 grams at the time of packaging, as listed on the pack. As per the packaged commodities guidelines, the net weight specified on the pack is the weight observed at the time of packaging. Technically, all soaps lose moisture during the journey to retail outlets and hence we witness a drop in the weight".
Promising that company will look into the whole issue, the statement further said, "The letter we received from The Food and Drug Administration alleged a lesser weight and not the quality. We will corroborate it with the concerned authorities and do a thorough investigation to understand the alleged difference in the product weight of the sample".
Reckitt Benckiser (India) Limited has reiterated that our brand has been trusted for over 80 years in the country,so we are committed towards the health, safety and well-being of our consumers.
Earlier, on June 19 a report came to fore that branded Dettol soaps along with 10 other medicines failed lab test and found sub standard.
