Johannesburg - The National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications denied a report on Monday that it would recall Dettol and Domestos products.
"The products to be recalled are new products and we will issue a statement in the week," spokesperson Daniel Ndiambani Ramarumo told Sapa.
"But Dettol and Domestos are not the two products we planned on announcing today [Monday]."
On Monday, a press conference by the NRCS's chemicals, mechanical and materials department to announce the recall of two well-known disinfectant products was cancelled.
Maroela Media reported that an NRCS spokesperson said the company was worried about certain imported Dettol and Domestos products and that they were considering recalling the products countrywide.
According to the report, the imported products did not comply with the compulsory specification for disinfectants as administered by the NRCS.
Domestos Extended Germ Kill and Dettol Disinfectant Liquid would likely be recalled but all the products manufactured in South Africa met all the requirements of the regulator and were safe to use, it reported.
Maroela Media said the NRCS would send the products for comprehensive tests to determine whether the content of the products are hazardous to consumers.
However, Ramarumo said he could not give the name of the products as the finalisation of the press release needed to be completed but insisted that it was not Dettol or Domestos.
