Pili, Camarines Sur — An NFA Task Force led by NFA RO5 Regional Director Ruben J. Reside has recently made a surprise inspection of the Calabanga Public Market to verify reports about the presence of fake rice in the province.The reports, however, proved negative as the group observed the abundance of rice supply, with the prevailing price for commercial rice at a normal level ranging from ₱25.00 to ₱42.00 per kilogram; while the NFA Rice still remain at ₱27.00 and 32.00 per kilogram.

The NFA is asking the consumer public to be vigilant and immediately report to NFA Cam Sur Hotline (054) 475-63-43 presence of suspicious rice in the market.

From the many complaints received by the cereal agency, only the sample from Davao City turned out to be positive as attested by the NFA Food Development Center in Taguig. A plasticizer contaminant was found in the sample. Others are purely hoaxes or false alarms caused by public paranoia.

The public is requested that any suspicious rice product found in the market, one (1) kilogram sample of the same should be immediately submitted to the nearest NFA office with information as from whom it was bought (name of store-owner) and location. – NFA Camarines Sur Public Affairs
