NAFDAC seals 6 bakeries in Kaduna

The National Agency for Food, Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has sealed six bakeries in Kaduna State for not adhering to good hygiene.

The state Coordinator of NAFDAC, Mr Nasiru Mato disclosed this in an interview with newsmen on Friday in Kaduna.

In his words, “Most of the bakeries did not meet the minimum requirements to operate while others were not registered with the agency.

“NAFDAC in Kaduna has embarked on massive surveillance on bakeries in the state as part of efforts to ensure strict compliance to standards.

“The focus of the reappraisal visit to the bakeries by NAFDAC in the state is to ensure that bakers regularise their licenses, adhere to Good Hygiene Practice, among other stipulated laid down regulatory requirements.

“During the visit, a total of six defaulting bakeries were placed on hold as the first line of sanction for various irregularities.

“The fact that people see bread and other products with NAFDAC numbers does not mean they are fully registered because some people fake the numbers by themselves.

“These products are not certified and have not gotten licence from us, so we are closing them down and we will make sure they are not seen in the market for consumption.’’

He said NAFDAC would continue to ensure that manufacturers of all regulated products did what was right within the ambit of the agency’s regulations and guidelines for a healthy citizenry.
