NAFDAC Seals Four Bakeries in Benin

By Our Reporter

Officials of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) have sealed off four bakeries during an inspection exercise in Benin.

The bakeries which are all located on Sapkonba Road includes God’s Will, Life is Good, Our Daily Bread and Stone bakeries.

Three persons were also arrested for unwholesome practices during the exercise.

The Coordinator of NAFDAC in Edo State Mr David West while speaking during the exercise said it was in line with the agency’s mandate of safeguarding the health of Nigerians.

He added that the exercise was geared towards achieving three objectives of registration of bakeries, good hygiene practice and non-use of prohibited dough ingredients.

“We have three teams carrying out this exercise in different locations in Benin today.

“From the inspection so far, we observed that most of the bakeries are not listed with NAFDAC and they operate under poor hygiene condition.

“We have given sanctions and made some arrest and they will be prosecuted,” Mr West said.
