NAFDAC’s officials also made some arrest before sealing off the facilities where it said sachet water was being produced in what it described as alarmingly unhygienic conditions.
According to a statement signed by NAFDAC Coordinator in Rivers State, Chinelo Ejeh, the agency found that the sealed factories were packaging water directly from boreholes without any form of treatment.
Chinelo Ojeh noted that “The illegal sachet water factories clamped down in Okrika were located in dingy rooms within live-in apartments in close proximity to toilets and dirty drainage channels.”
The NAFDAC State Coordinator therefore called on other sachet water producers still involved in illegal packing in unhygienic conditions to put a stop to such unwholesome practice or be ready to go to jail.
“The Agency is also appealing to members of the public to always avail NAFDAC of information regarding illegal producers of regulated products,” Chinelo said. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
