Unregistered food products can kill you

- Advertisement -

This is an unregistered sugar produced by an unregistered business entity without an address yet the product has been on the shelves of major supermarkets in Abuja. This particular one was purchased by Frank Tietie from one of Abuja’s popular 24-hour supermarkets (name concealed on the price tag). When this sugar product was exposed to regular sugar ants for a long time, the ants avoided it.

It is criminal and risky for a popular chain store in Abuja to display and sell consumer food that is unregistered and produced by an unregistered business without a known address and proprietors.

One of the associated risks of consuming such a product is that a sizable section of a population can be poisoned slowly without knowing.

TAKE NOTICE that NAFDAC, FCCPC, etc, including the police, can be held responsible for failing to take action against such shops, supermarkets, and department stores that sell unregistered products.

Criminal complaints and civil actions can also be initiated against these outlets if they fail to clear their shelves with unregistered products.

Consumer Watch, Nigeria is a social advocacy programme of the Citizens Advocacy for Social & Economic Rights (CASER) that aims at creating consumer awareness on safety and redress mechanisms on consumer products in Nigeria. CASER was established by Frank Tietie in 2014 to improve the living standards of Nigerian citizens, by applying the human rights approach to life and governance.
