To ensure the availability of all right quality and safe products in the state, the agency seizes unregistered and fake products worth One million six hundred and twenty eight thousand, nine hundred Naira (N 1,628, 900.00). These products include several food products and different kind of cosmetics found in City store, Arabian Supermarket, F&S Supermarket and MRS mini mart all in Bauchi metropolis.

The need to ascertain the quality and safety of the regulated products sold in the state led to the  unscheduled surveillance visit to supermarkets, markets and corner shops in the metropolis  where the four supermarkets were found selling unregistered and expired products;

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 e.g. Company’s name and address, Batch coding, Production and Expiry/ Best before dates, NAFDAC Reg. No before making their purchases from super markets to avoid consumption of any fake/ counterfeit, unwholesome and expired product, they should report to NAFDAC office any 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 effort to monitor all regulated products produced, consumed or sold in the state to ensure that they meet up with required standard.
