The Nigerian National Agency for Food Drug Administration Control (NAFDAC), in Katsina State, has impounded not fewer than 100 cartons of expired refreshment drink at a supermarket in Katsina metropolis.
John Agada, The state Director Of NAFDAC, disclosed in an interview with the media saying “NAFDAC has received a query from a consumer that a particular retail store was selling expired zero coke.
MR JOHN AGADA’S STATEMENT READS:
When we visited the supermarket, our officers found several cartons of Zero coke, which date of best use was June 2018. By implication, it means that all the cartons of the zero coke are harmful and dangerous to the consumers and the owner of the supermarket was still in business selling the expired coke. NAFDAC officers immediately impounded the cartons of zero coke as the best day for drinking them had expired.”
NAFDAC Seized 100 Cartons Of Expired Coke:
Agada, however, called on members of the public in the State and Nigeria at large to always look up for the expiry date of any bottle of soft drinks and other consumables before consumption.
John Agada further warned owners and operators of supermarkets and provision stores always to check purchased items to avoid selling expired products to unsuspecting members of the public.
” Anybody caught selling expired items will face the full wrath of the law,”
Agada stated as NAFDAC seized 100 cartons of expired Coke
