The US Food & Drug Administration is investigating a Miami-based Tok Tok home chef whose mysterious pink sauce condiment has gone viral on social media, Media Take Out confirmed.
TikTok user @chef.pii went viral last month after posting a video promoting her milky-pink Pink Sauce.
Dozens of TikTok users have shared videos showing them pouring the pink batter onto burgers, fries and KFC chicken. Thousands of people bought the sauce — which sells online for $20 a bottle — according to online reports viewed by Media Take Out.
It was all good for the TikTok star until customers started reporting her to the FBI for mislabeling her product.
Chef Pii originally refused to tell customers what was in the pink bottles. Then she posted a video revealing the ingredients.

Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
But that’s not good enough for the Food and Drug Administration. According to the FDA, anyone selling spices must register the location of the facility where the spices are made.
The FDA requires information such as testing, food safety compliance, and “scientific protocols.”
Chef Pi’s bottles are labeled. However, the labels contained several misspellings and possible mistakes in the nutritional information.
Chef Pii posted another video on Friday apologizing for misspellings on the labels.
“I’m not just human. I am not perfect. This is a small company that is developing very, very quickly,” she said.
In the video, Pii explained that her team is working to bring the sauce’s cost down from the current $20 per bottle. She also claims her sauce is in “lab testing” and each bottle has 30 servings.
But that explanation wasn’t good enough. Media Take Out confirmed that a federal agent came to her home on Friday.
Here’s a video of the FDA pulling up at her home:
