Nestle Slammed Over Poor Quality Control, Weavils Found in Popular Product

Nestle Nigeria PLC has been called out by a Nigerian living in the the United States of America, Mr Michael over weavils infested “Golden Morn”.

According to Michael, who posted with his handle on X.com , he visited Nigeria a couple of weeks back and brought a pouch of Nestle’s Golden Morn. To his utmost surprise, the popular cereal had weavils.

He further stated that the weavils were so much and he wondered why there will be that much insect in a sealed package.

Expressing his shock, Michael said “So, I brought Nestle’s Golden Morn from Nigeria. I just opened it now to feed my kids and guess what, it has weevils! Like, lots of them. I’ve never seen insects inside a sealed cereal package before so this is quite shocking to me. ”

Meanwhile, he tried to convince his kids that it’s not a bad thing but the kids kept screaming ” bugs! bugs” “I tried to play it down to my kids, I told them it’s “protein” that we ate beans with insects in them growing up, they would have none of that. They kept shouting “bugs! bugs! There are bugs in the Golden Morn!”

He then went ahead to question the quality control process in Nestle Nigeria, as he purchases “Golden Morn” on Amazon and he has never seen bugs in them.

He noted that “We buy Golden Morn on Amazon here and I’ve never seen bugs in them. I’m still shocked. How can weevils make it into a processed food? What is the quality control like at Nestle Nigeria? Who is the regulatory body that supposed to be checking these things? Nafdac?”

Disappointed, he said it’ll be hard for his kids to trust a bagged Cereal from Nigeria. “I’m completely disappointed. It will take a long time to restore my kids’ trust in a bagged cereal from Nigeria now.”
