NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC

#1 Proliferation of fertilizers with dubious packaging

In response to the proliferation of alleged fake fertilizers in the Philippines, the Fertilizer and Pesticide Authority (FPA) conducted intensified monitoring through its Regional Field Units (RFUs).


Pursuant to a report from our RFU from Region II that multiple 50kg sacks of the products Philphos Ammonium Phosphate and Philphos 14-14-14 with registration nos. 1-1IF-7464 and 1-1LF-013, respectively, with dubious packaging, were seen proliferating in the market, this Office ordered the collection of samples thereof for laboratory analysis.


Based on the results of the laboratory analysis conducted by our Laboratory Services Division (LSD), the products did not meet the standard based on their guaranteed analysis. As such, the company was informed about the actions conducted by this Office and was given an opportunity to explain. The company denied involvement on the said products with dubious packaging and informed this Office that it did not supply the same.


Hence, in the spirit of public service, this Office humbly requests the public to refrain from patronizing the abovementioned products and report any movement of these products to help combat their proliferation. Moreover, let this be a reminder for the public to be vigilant on these products.

#2 Stop Sale, Stop Use, Stop Move and Hold (SUMS) Order

Fertilizer samples were collected from various licensed handlers in the Philippines to ensure that the quality of fertilizer products available to the public conforms to the prescribed standards.


Based on the results of the recent laboratory analyses conducted by our Laboratory Services Division (LSD), the product Xian-Bee Complete 14-14-14 Granular with registration no. 1-1LF-8653 manufactured by Itchan Fertilizer Manufacturing did not meet the standard based on its guaranteed analysis.


As such, the company has been served a Stop Sale, Stop Use, Stop Move and Hold (SUMS) Order for the abovementioned product, and all its FPA-issued licenses have been suspended until its compliance with our recommended corrective actions.


In the spirit of public service, this Office humbly requests the public to refrain from patronizing the abovementioned product and report any movement of the said product to help combat its proliferation.
