NAFDAC confiscates 100 cartons of expired zero Coke in a Katsina popular supermarket
The National Agency for Food Drug Administration Control (NAFDAC) in Katsina State, said it had confiscated no fewer than 100 cartons of expired popular beverage drink, Zero coke at an unnamed supermarket in Katsina metropolis.
The state director of NAFDAC, Mr. John Agada, made the disclosure in an interview on Monday in Katsina.
According to him, NAFDAC received a complaint from a consumer that a particular supermarket was selling expired zero coke and when they visited the supermarket, they found several cartons of Zero coke, which date of best use, is June 2018.
This by implication 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,” he said.
Agada called on members of the public in the State to always look at the expiring date of any bottle of soft drink before consumption.
He warned owners and operators of supermarkets and provision stores to always 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”. he said.
