NAFDAC penalises Abuja pizza outlets for using expired ingredients
The FCT Directorate of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) says it has penalised two pizza outlets in the FCT for using expired dough blend seasoning.
The FCT director of the agency, Ozigis Abdulsalam, made this known in a statement in Abuja on Friday.
He stated that the FCT department of the agency acted upon intelligence information, inspected pizza outlets, and discovered that two of them were using expired dough blend seasoning.
The NAFDAC official added that the two outlets used deep ham slices to prepare their pizzas.
He said that the act amounted to dereliction of best practices “and can jeopardise food safety and lead to public health issues.”
Mr Abdulsalam added that the ingredients were seized, and the company was penalised.
He said the company is expected to submit an undertaking not to be found engaging in such practices again.
