KINGSTON, Jamaica — Former distributor of the Deluxe Nadinola Bleaching Cream, E W Abrahams and Sons Limited (EWA), is warning the public to beware of counterfeit products bearing the label, which was discontinued four years ago.

EWA, in a newspaper advertisement today, said it discontinued both the name and the distribution of the Nadinola Bleaching Cream in 2015 and has not disclosed the formula to a third party nor given permission for the use of the product's original name.

“Typically deceptive, the counterfeiter keeps changing its own fraudulent package claims. Current statement on the package says the product is manufactured and distributed by J Strickland Kgn. That is false. It also conflicts with statement on the bottle label that says the product is “Distributed by Co. Kingston,” said EWA, noting that the distributor of counterfeit product “Can't even keep their lies straight”.

EWA also said it is unaware of the counterfeiter, their production methods and the composition of the fake product.

The company said this raises serious health and safety concerns for the unknowing users of the fake product.

"E W Abrahams and Sons Limited/ J Strickland and Co deny any liability for any claim in damages of personal injuries to harm otherwise, resulting from the manufacture, trade or use of the fake Nadinola Bleaching Cream," the ad said.
