NAFDAC shuts firm packaging honey in unhygienic environment



NATIONAL Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has shut a manufacturing facility which packaged honey under poor hygiene in Abuja.
NAFDAC’s Director-General, Prof. Moji Adeyeye, said in a statement that the action was based on information on social media, which indicated that the product produced by Upon the Rock Church of God, Durumi, Abuja was adulterated.
”NAFDAC officials clamped down on the facility in Abuja where honey was being packaged. ”We acted based on information (video) of honey purchased from a certain supermarket in Abuja, circulated on social media by a customer alleging that the product was adulterated.
”The product was produced by Upon the Rock Church of God, Durumi, Abuja,” Adeyeye said. She said that tests on the product, which was initially registered with NAFDAC, confirmed that the product had become unwholesome and unfit for consumption.
”Investigations revealed that the company registered ‘Upon the Rock Honey’ with NAFDAC in December 2018 upon assurance that NAFDAC’s quality standards were met through proper testing and inspection.
”But thereafter, the company started producing under poor hygiene. The facility also added some unregistered variants of the product that were never presented to NAFDAC.
”Some of the products were found to have fake NAFDAC registration numbers printed on them.
