Pan De Sal Bakers Go On Nationwide Strike Amid Reno Liver Spread Ban

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Starting Friday at 5:00 a.m., Filipinos may not find any pan de sal in their favorite bakeries or neighborhood sari-sari stores.

The National Association of Pan de Sal Bakers (NAPSB) has announced that its more than 1 Million members will go on a nationwide strike, in protest of the Food and Drug Administration’s announcement that it was banning the sale, purchase and consumption of Reno liver spread.  FDA said the brand, which has been in existence for more than half a century, has not registered with the regulatory agency.

Reno liver spread has been a favorite of Filipino households, across all social classes, being a secret ingredient for popular dishes like kaldereta and adobo, as well as the choice spread for pan de sal, the inexpensive breakfast bun.

The NAPSB told The Adobo Chronicles that the nationwide strike will last until the FDA reverses its decision/announcement regarding this well-loved Filipino version of the paté.
