Briefly: Beware of Revalidated Yoghurt, Fake Wines - NAFDAC

National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, has alerted the public on the circulation of revalidated expired yoghurt, unregistered wines and spirits in the market.

The Director General of the agency, Dr. Paul Orhii, during a press briefing, said the agency has launched investigation into the alteration of the expiry date of the yoghurt known as Dunone Ultra Mel Yoghurt.

He noted that a firm tampered with the expiry date of March 2015 of the yoghurt by carefully altering the last number in the date to read March 2016.

Also, the agency intercepted a truckload of various suspected counterfeit and unregistered wines and spirits belonging to a businessman (names withheld) along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.

On examination, the NAFDAC Chief said, the truck contained counterfeit and unregistered wines and spirits - J&P Wine, Red Label, Villiera Fired Earth Wine, and Jelzin Assorted Flavours, JP Chernet Wine, Cask and Cream, E and J Brey, among others.
