NAFDAC shuts down Lagos water factories over unhygienic cond

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, has shut down several packaged water factories in Lagos State's Alimosho area due to unhygienic conditions.

This was contained in a statement and accompanying photos shared on X.com on Wednesday.

According to the post, NAFDAC explained that the closures resulted from inspections by the Investigation and Enforcement Directorate. 

The agency highlighted the role of its Investigation and Enforcement Directorate in carrying out the inspections leading to these closures.

The statement partly reads, "The inspections revealed that the unhygienic conditions of these factories posed serious health risks due to potential contamination by pathogenic microorganisms.

"As a result, several factories were sealed for non-compliance with NAFDAC regulations."

NAFDAC further urged the public to be vigilant when purchasing sachets and bottled water and to also verify supply sources.

It urged citizens to report any suspicious activities to the nearest NAFDAC office.
