In a bid to further ensure the protection of consumers from unwholesome products, the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA) has sealed Canvest Nigeria Limited warehouse, located at Plot 4, Cocoa Industrial Road, Ogba, Ikeja, for repackaging unwholesome and expired curry powder with the name Chinchilli and Ducross for sale.
Acting on an anonymous tip-off from a member of the public, the Special Monitoring Team of LASCOPA, led by its General Manager, Mrs. Kemi Olugbode paid an unscheduled assessment visit to the warehouse to verify the claim.
The General Manager, speaking after the exercise, stated that the enforcement team discovered thousands of expired products stored in cartons, while some were found in sacks that were ready to be repackaged for sale in the market.
She said “It is unfortunate that some business owners are endangering the lives of residents in the State for pecuniary gains by selling unwholesome products to unsuspecting consumers. This is unacceptable to the government and the Agency is totally committed to protecting and promoting the rights of all consumers from products that are unsafe for human consumption”.
While stressing that staff of the company involved in the fraudulent operation have been arrested, Olugbode disclosed that the property will remain sealed until the government commences prosecution of the owners of the warehouse and all those arrested.
Mrs. Olugbode also encouraged members of the public to support the present administration's determination to rid Lagos of all illegal activities by reporting those who are engaged in unwholesome activities that are detrimental to the health of residents.
