So TikTok creator Chef Pii has been promoting her mysterious brand of “Pink Sauce” to her followers. The social media influencer first started pushing the produced back in June by releasing a string of videos of her trying it with different foods. Priced at $20, the sauce quickly became a viral sensation — in part because of its mysteriousness!

Other TikTokers began to notice how Chef Pii kept cryptic about how the sauce tasted. Reviewers would speak about it after purchasing, but the creator herself was mum when it came to divulging too much info. People thought that was weird!!

In promo videos late last month, she kept things tight and upped the mystery aspect of it even as followers asked more about what it was like:

Pink mayo! LOLz!

Oh, and different batches of the sauce appeared to be different color shades!! That really got people going online. And while that could have been a lighting issue with the various different videos, social media users were immediately suspicious about what was going on.

By late June, Chef Pii had done her best to address some of those concerns. She did point out that, yes, batches of the sauce appeared to be different shades of pink. But she said that was simply because of the conditions of the various viral vids:

She also finally posted a graphic about some of the ingredients within the brightly-colored sauce: dragon fruit, sunflower seed oil, honey, chili, and garlic.

But… on Wednesday, the s**t hit the fan in a BIG way.

Another TikToker took to the social media app to reveal their fear over the mystery sauce. User Sean SVV explained it succinctly at the beginning of their video, saying:

“I am scared for the Pink Sauce lady right now.”

Referencing American cottage law, which deals with home kitchen operations, they questioned the nutrition label on the sauce containers and claimed that “there are not enough preservatives” in the sauce “to make it shelf stable.” They went on to assert that “the micros and the macros are not adding up” on the nutrition label, with hundreds of servings listed and supposedly thousands of grams of ingredients involved.

Sean SVV was clear on their hope that the Pink Sauce Lady would fix the issues. And it was clear they are rooting for the entrepreneur even amid the question of the nutrition label:

“I’m genuinely rooting for her to obtain a license, fix the labels, correct any errors and then sell out — legally.”

You can see their videos on the matter (below):

Whew.

Other TikTok users doubled down on some of the nutrition label’s major inconsistencies. One person questioned the milk-based product within the bottle — and whether it needed to be refrigerated. She also reported that the word “vinegar” was apparently spelled incorrectly on the label:

Not a great sign!!!

Following these videos, and lots of reaction from other users across social media, Chef Pii addressed the issues with Pink Sauce in her own new TikTok clip this week.

In the caption, in ALL CAPS, Chef Pii pledged that “WE ARE FIXING THE ISSUES.” The woman also said she was going to “acknowledge the elephant in the room,” and began by trying to address the nutritional label mix-ups and explain that she is “only human” and thus prone to mistakes. Chef Pii revealed that the product is “still in lab testing” even though it is supposedly “following the FDA standard.” Um… Here’s her response video from later on Wednesday:
