The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has sealed a manufacturing and packaging warehouse where honey was being poorly and unhygienically packaged in Nigeria’s federal capital city Abuja.
In a statement by Prof. Moji Adeyeye, NAFDAC’s Director-General, the action was based on information on social media which indicated that the product, produced in Durumi, Abuja was adulterated. “NAFDAC officials clamped down on the facility in Abuja where honey was being packaged. “We acted based on information (video) of honey purchased from a certain supermarket in Abuja, circulated on social media by a customer alleging that the product was adulterated. “The product was produced by Upon the Rock Church of God, Durumi, Abuja,’’ Adeyeye said.
She said that tests on the product, which was initially registered with NAFDAC, confirmed that the product had become unwholesome and unfit for consumption and for that reason, had his licensed revoked.
Despite the fact that NAFDAC registers business, it also revokes it if the business mangers is trying to deceive the general public and poison them for his own personal greed. We know Sars and EFCC are constantly on the look out for the indivisuals who are acting suspicious on social media, but who would have thought that NAFDAC equally looks out for these things on social media.
I’m social on pressed with them for going after this factory. Ladies and gentlemen, you can now freely report poisonous foods making rounds in the society. Good to know NAFDAC… 👏👏👏
