The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has intensified enforcement operations in Kaduna to tackle peddlers of unwholesome products and protect public health

The Kaduna  State Coordinator of the agency, Mr. Nasiru Mato, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna.

Flowerbudnews recalls that  four illegal facilities engaged in the production of unregistered yoghurt were recently closed in Kaduna by NAFDAC.


Mato said that the agency sealed the facilities during its surveillance activities in the state for lapses hinging on: unsatisfactory good manufacturing practice, poor hygiene practice, and operating with expired licence.


He said that the monitoring exercise was part of measures put in place by the agency in the state to ensure that only quality and wholesome products are produced, distributed, and sold to their consumers always.


In the light of the foregoing, we want to seize this opportunity to strongly emphasise that strict adherence to operational standards must  be maintained and upheld by the producers of yoghurt and other water-based drinks for the safety of their consumers.


“That will avert possible detrimental consequences on the health of the consumers.


” Routine and surveillance activities will continue to be intensified on the manufacturers of regulated products in every nook and cranny of Kaduna State by NAFDAC, ” Mato said. (NAN)( / Flowerbudnews
