Chef.Pii’s Pink Sauce has been making the viral rounds for the past couple of weeks after she made several TikToks squirting it all over lots of already perfectly good foods, and it’s also probably been making the bacterial rounds since people say that the $20 a bottle “unknown flavored” sauce is arriving to them rancid after being shipped unrefrigerated in this damn summer heat. She’s also been receiving backlash since the ingredient and nutrition labels are pretty much straight fiction. Unsurprisingly, the woman behind the sauce recently went live on TikTok and showed how clueless she really is about food production and safety when she made it clear that she doesn’t know what “FDA” stands for, what its purpose is, or why her spoiling sauce needs to be approved by them.
According to Complex, Chef.Pii told Today that Pink Sauce production has been paused at the moment, but that didn’t stop her from then going live on TikTok to defend her product and show her proverbial whole ass and why you shouldn’t buy creamy condiments from randos on social media.
“What do you mean FDA-approved?” Pii said in the clip. “I don’t sell medical products. The Pink Sauce is not a medical product. The Pink Sauce don’t contribute to your health. I never said that, did I? Make it make sense in the stuff that y’all saying. … Since y’all want to act like children, I’m going to talk to y’all like y’all children. I used to work at a middle school.”
Here’s that mess:
“what do you mean FDA APPROVED?”

Which obviously caused people to want to dunk on her for her ignorance:

Mailing people mystery sauce that contains milk with zero preservatives in it through the US postal system has GOT to be considered a form of bioterrorism https://t.co/FSwQvZcuMX

But, once this Live started picking up speed, she shared this long-ass video on YouTube that says the sauce “was being made in an FDA-approved commercial facility” in Florida. It being made in Ron DeSantis’ Florida is enough for me to pass; are Florida males allowed to eat a lady-gendered sauce? Anyway, $20 and 52 minutes of my life is far too rich for my blood to just know if I’ll maybe continue to stay well after consuming a condiment.
All of Chef.Pii’s back-and-forth on the FDA is perplexing since THE FDA SHOWED UP AT HER DAMN HOUSE before she dogged people on that Livestream for wanting to know if it was FDA approved:

Hopefully, this can be a lesson to those who’ve turned to TikTok for their culinary needs. Stick to your Safeways, Whole Foods, Krogers, or whatever your regional grocery store of choice is. Or, go to CVS and grab a bottle of Calamine Lotion to slather on your nuggies. At least it has some kind of production/public health oversight and probably tastes better than whatever Chef.Pii has been sloppily concocting in her bathtub.
