NAFDAC has shut down 30 water factories in Nasarawa
According to NAN, Micheal Attah who represented oyin said the factories were closed after an unannounced inspection.
"In the course of our regulation and surveillance inspection from 2015 to 2016, we shut down more than 30 factories across the state for producing below standard.
"The agency has many sanctions for factories violating our standard or not adhering strictly to our rules and regulations.’’
“The exercise is imperative because most producers of water do not have an in-house quality control unit to analyse the quality of their products periodically.
“The exercise gives manufacturers the opportunity to see the sample tested practically and if found satisfactory, it builds more confidence on the products and helps the producers to maintain the standard.
“On the other hand, if found unsatisfactory, the agency will audit the processes and make the necessary corrections that would enable the products meet required quality standard,” she added.
