NAFDAC shuts down unregistered bakery
The National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), has shut down a supermarket, Ford Mart in Karu, Abuja, for operating unregistered bakery.
Clementina Anyakora, the Coordinating Officer of NAFDAC in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), made the announcement on Friday in Abuja. On visiting the bakery, she said, “we are placing the supermarket on hold and we invite them (management) to come to NAFDAC office with sample of their bread to analyse it if it is good for public consumption. The industrial salt used for production here is harmful to human health. Some other products you see here are without NAFDAC registration number. We will ensure that these products do not go out for sales; we will confiscate and destroy them.”
Anyakora urged Nigerians to be vigilant and check the expiry date and NAFDAC registration number on products before buying and consuming them. She also called on Nigerians to feel free to report any fake and unregistered product to NAFDAC office.
