eew! NAFDAC fines Guiness Nigeria ₦1 billion

Wait! is it a season of fine or how...Ko ye mi. I guess there's something to all this fine up and down. Anyways, The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has fined Guinness Nigeria Plc, N1bn for violating laid down rules.

As reported by Punch, NAFDAC accused Guinness of allegedly revalidating expired products without authorisation and supervision, and exposing its raw materials to rodents.

Contained in an excerpt of the letter from NAFDAC, reads:

“In view of the above, you are further required to take the following actions: disclosure of all your warehouses in the country and submission of inventory level of the stock thereof; submit a written voluntary consent of forfeiture for destruction of the expired and revalidated raw materials discovered in your warehouse; and submit a notarised undertaking to comply with all the guidelines, rules, regulations and enactments of the agency, and to refrain from any future violations.”

Guinness Nigeria Plc is expected to pay the fine, in two weeks.
