NAFDAC Raids Lagos Warehouse, Seizes 115 Carton of Potassium Bromate Tablets

THE National Agency for Food, Drug Administration, and Control, NAFDAC, Monday disclosed that its officers raided a warehouse in the Apongbon area of Lagos Island where they found one hundred and fifteen, 115 cartons of Potassium bromate tablets worth N28 million on the black market.

The Acting Director General of NAFDAC, Dr Monica Eimunjeze, during a press conference on the arrest of the perpetrators in Lagos, explained that potassium bromate is a banned flour improver globally because it is a known cancer-causing agent.

She also stated that the NAFDAC enforcement team discovered a counterfeit EDC Bread Improver in the warehouse, packed in sachets with a fake NAFDAC registration number 01-4242, worth N300,000. She warned that any flour product containing potassium bromate will be confiscated, and the producer will face the wrath of the law.
