Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 30) — The Food and Drug Administration is waiting for the manufacturer of the popular Reno liver spread to submit test results proving its product is safe to consume following the company's application for product registration, its chief confirmed Wednesday.

“They filed an application for product registration. I think they applied last Friday,” FDA Director General Rolando Domingo told CNN Philippines in a text message, referring to Reno Foods, Inc.

“The evaluation process for certification of product registration entails checking of the safety and quality of a respective product with applicable standards and issuances,” the FDA previously said.

The FDA earlier warned the public against purchasing the said brand of canned good as its maker has failed to register its product. Reno liver spread has been around since 1958, according to its product label.

Firms are required to secure two types of authorizations before they are allowed to sell processed items in the market — the CPR and the License-to-Operate or LTO. Reno has an LTO, the regulator said.
