NAFDAC discovers another warehouse

The National Agency for Food on Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, has again discovered another warehouse in Lagos where unregistered food products including sardines, cooking spices and tomato pastes worth millions of Naira were stashed.

Briefly Journalists in Lagos, the Acting Director-General of NAFDAC, Dr. Monica Eimunjeze who led the enforcement team for the sting operation said that despite the ban on the importation of tomato pastes in the country, the Agency was surprised to see heavy loads of unregistered tomato pastes, seasonings and sardines stockpiled in warehouses in Lagos.

Dr. Eimunjeze said that although an investigation is ongoing, it was necessary to alert the public on the discovery to prevent the consumption of such unregistered products, especially, now the festive period is at hand.

It would be recalled that the Agency had earlier in the week uncovered a warehouse in Lagos containing potassium bromated tablets and an unregistered imported bread improver.
