In our effort to ensure the availability of all right quality and safe products in the state, the agency embarked on unscheduled surveillance visit to supermarkets, markets and corner shops in the metropolis to ascertain the quality and safety of the regulated products sold in the state.
It was during the surveillance visit that one of the supermarket, Jifatu Stores located at Adamu Jumba Road was found selling items with labeling violations such as no batch coding or date markings while others were already expired.
The items include biscuits, spaghetti, macaroni, custard, flour, spices, milk, vegetable oil and mouth wash.
The violating products were mopped up and the owner sanctioned for selling unwholesome products.
The general public is therefore advised to look out for adequately labeled products i.e. they should look for the Brand name, Company’s name and address, Batch coding, Production and Expiry/ Best before dates before making their purchase from super markets to avoid consumption of any fake/ counterfeit, unwholesome and expired product, they should inform NAFDAC office on products that have any form of lapses as mentioned above.
The owners of departmental stores, corner shops and other selling points are therefore warned to desist from selling unwholesome products or face the wrath of the law.
NAFDAC will not relent in its efforts to monitor all regulated products produced or sold in the state to ensure they meet up with required standard
