Posted by Amarachi on Mon 23rd Aug, 2021 -

The outlets were sealed by the agency for contravening various production laws.


Thirty-eight sachet water production outlets have been shut down by operatives of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, in Sokoto State for illegal production.

NAFDAC State Coordinator in Sokoto, Malam Garba Adamu, who made this known to newsmen on Monday said the outlets were sealed for contravening various production laws.

He noted that the exercise was part of the routine operations of the agency aimed at safeguarding the quality and sanity of products being consumed by people.

“The 38 sealed outlets had poor hygiene, low-quality production, illegal production and other offences.

“We received complaints daily on the poor quality of sachet water and prevalence of outbreaks of water-related diseases, that is why we swung into action.

“Our aim is to ensure maintenance of good manufacturing process. So, most of the outlets have been put on hold for them to come to the office and obtain requisite practice procedures as they were registered,’’
Adamu said.

The coordinator urged the people to always check the sachet water they drink to ensure that there are no substances, adding that they should report any form of impurity or suspected adulterations for appropriate actions.

He said that the sealed outlets would be sanctioned in line with NAFDAC laws for them to properly register and obtain their licence.
