The Lagos government has warned business owners and manufacturers of consumable products to avoid selling expired and adulterated products, particularly during the ember period and forthcoming Yuletide.

Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA) general manager Afolabi Solebo gave the warning on Wednesday.

“This is the ember months, and businesses are closing down to December, and this is a time that people will continue to sell products that are about to expire or the ones that are even expired. This is the time they will start doctoring the manufacture date and expiry date, that is, the product information of those goods,” stated the LASCOPA boss.

Mr Solebo added, “So, we will continue to do public enlightenment, to enlighten the people of the state to be very careful and wary of people like that. As those expired products are of no good to you, what is the point of using your money to buy what will cause your death or buying products that are hazardous to your life.”

He explained that adulterated goods would be confiscated and culprits prosecuted.
