Dettol South Africa is aware of reports regarding Prophet Rufus Phala’s practice of instructing his congregation to drink Dettol Antiseptic Liquid.
Dettol Antiseptic Liquid has been proven to be safe and effective when used as per recommended directions. However, Dettol Antiseptic Liquid is not for human consumption and is for external use only, and we condemn the reported usage as inappropriate. Oral consumption of this product can be dangerous to one’s health.
We have been in contact with Prophet Rufus Phala and have asked him to stop this practice.
Anyone who has consumed Dettol Antiseptic Liquid should consult a healthcare practitioner or the nearest hospital casualty.
