Adulteration: NAFDAC destroys N5m herbal products in Enugu


Enugu – The National Agency for Foods and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) on Thursday destroyed fake and adulterated herbal products worth over N5 million in Enugu.
The NAFDAC Enugu State Coordinator, Mr Ikechukwu Okoye, who led a team that carried out the destruction, told newsmen that the exercise would deter counterfeiters from producing such unwholesome products.
He said that the manufacturer of the products had been apprehended by the agency and handed over to the police, while investigation was ongoing.
“The suspect operated an illegal factory along Okpara Avenue in the heart of Enugu metropolis, where he carried out the concocted mixture of herbal products and sold to unsuspecting members of the public,’’ Okoye said.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”70560″]

The NAFDAC coordinator said that the environment where the herbal products were being produced was hygienically unsafe.
“His hidden production site where he mixed the concoction is under a tree with a toilet beside it,’’ he said.
Okoye urged the public to join NAFDAC to rid the country of counterfeit, substandard and unwholesome products through prompt information on activities of dubious foods and drugs producers around them. (NAN)
