National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, says 22 bakeries and 25 “sachet water” factories have been sealed during routine inspection in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State.
Nasiru Mato, the agency’s Coordinator in Borno, disclosed this shortly after a raid in Maiduguri on Sunday, November 17, 2019.
Mato said some of the shut factories did not meet the minimum requirements to operate, while others were not registered with the agency.
He added that “we have done a lot in terms of surveillance, investigative inspections and prompt response to consumer complaints and alerts. The objective is to ensure that the health and safety of the public is adequately catered for.
