A Lagos court has ordered the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) to pay a N2 million fine after it found that drinking Fanta or Sprite with Vitamin C posed a health risk.
“I have instructed NAFDAC to liaise with SON to address Nigerians immediately concerning the safety of Coca-Cola products made in Nigeria,” Adewole said via Twitter.
“Is Coca-Cola being produced in Nigeria safe? Is the acidity level acceptable? What is the difference between Coca-Cola products in Nigeria and the United Kingdom?
“The issue goes beyond legal aspects of the court verdict. It is about morality. Nigerians can trust us to put their safety first. God bless,” he added.
The court also ordered NAFDAC to compel the Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC), manufacturers of Fanta and Sprite, to place a warning on the drinks.
