The caption along with the post read: “Fake cashew making machine: what a big game of making a profit with people’s health.”
We investigated by searching the video using InVid Tool. Through Google Reverse Image Search of the screengrabs of the video, we found the same video on the Youtube channel ‘Tushar Pandya’. The video was titled ‘Kaju Nimki Making Machine.’
When we investigated the channel we found that Tushar Pandya manufactures machines for snacks.
We contacted Tushar Pandya who owns Chotiwala Foods and Machines and manufactures snacks-making machines. He said: “This is the fake claim that says the machine is manufacturing fake cashews. It is a snack made of flour. The machine shows the cutting of a flour sheet in the shape of cashews. It is sold as a snack and is roasted before eating.”
We scanned the profile of the Facebook user who shared the viral post. The user named Dilip Tiwari is based out of Lucknow.
