The National Agency For Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) on Thursday confirmed the sealing of  three shops in Borno over alleged circulation of unwholesome products.

This was made known by the agency’s Zonal Director, Malam Nasiru Mato, in Maiduguri.

Mato alleged that the shop owners were selling contaminated cosmetics contrary to the agency’s regulations.

He alleged that the shops were also selling harmful germicides, pesticides and herbicides.

“We have sealed off three shops at Monday Market in the metropolis.

“NAFDAC task force deployed to the market discovered that shop owners are processing harmful chemicals and selling them to the people.

“The products are poisonous and not good for consumption.

“The action contravened NAFDAC rules and regulations,” he said.

According to him, preliminary investigations showed that the products such as creams, shampoo and jelly contained harmful chemicals that can cause skin cancer and other diseases.

Mato said that human body could be exposed to the harmful chemicals through hair spray, perfumes, face powder and lipstick.

“A dioxins pollutant is sourced from petroleum chemicals and it is found in the cosmetics.”

Mato warned residents to be wary of unwholesome chemicals, but patronise products certified by NAFDAC.

He said that the agency had adopted effective modalities to check circulation of unwholesome products in the state in compliance with extant regulations.
