Ribena, really just a little bit!

I just read this news article.


GSK, the manufacturer of Ribena, has admitted to possibly misleading consumers when it stated that blackcurrents have 4 times more vitamin C than oranges. It was found that Ribena contains “almost no traces of the vitamin”.

Why aren’t they apologizing to the consumers in Singapore?

Update:   Ribena in Singapore is not affected.  Please see comments.  That’s why they are not apologizing in Singapore. 🙂

    Apparently, the products available in Singapore market are from Malaysia and the Philippines. AVA has stepped in to do a check and found that the claim still holds water.
