The company says that all the packets that were opened already had holes in them, customers with holes and leakage should not buy lassi.
A video showing fungus in packaged lassi of dairy brand Amul has gone viral on social media. A clarification has been issued on behalf of Amul on this video. The company claimed that the video is fake and termed it as an attempt to spread misinformation and fear among customers.
What did Amul say on the viral video?
The viral video shows packets of Amul Lassi, one of which is set to expire on October 12 this year. When a man opens its upper part, a fungus-like substance is shown on the top itself, which is visible on the top of the lassi. Amul said- “The fake message is going viral on social media, the creator of the video has neither contacted us for clarification nor disclosed his location.”
Amul’s advice to customers
Amul has also said that there is a hole in place of the straw from where leakage is also visible. Due to this hole, fungus must have been there, probably the video maker already knew about it. Amul has also advised its customers not to buy bloated and leaky packets. It has also been said that this video has been made for the purpose of instilling fear among the people.
User @hiharsh07 wrote on Twitter- “No actually the quality of your lassi has gone bad. I would say it is not lassi, it is lassi flavored water.” Another user wrote that instead of raising doubts on the creator of the video, Amul should be given on its own quality.
@RiderBaba_ user wrote, “When a shopkeeper is selling it, it can be damaged, or it must have been careless in bringing it. How can Amul be responsible for this?” Another user wrote that after watching the video carefully, it seems that the only purpose of making it is to create controversy.
