    Nigerians

    Nigerians should avoid eating frozen poultry products and other foods preserved with formalin, according to the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).

    Formalin is a toxic substance that is commonly used in mortuaries to preserve the human body.

    In an interview with NAN, NAFDAC spokesman Dr. Abubakar Jimoh stated that unscrupulous company owners had been using formalin to preserve poultry items, particularly chicken and turkey. He warned that formalin is capable of storing such products for weeks before they reach customers.

    “NAFDAC is alerting Nigerians to this practice. There are enough poultry products in the country than to resort to frozen chicken smuggled in, despite Federal Government’s ban,” Jimoh said.

    The NAFDAC spokesman also called the attention of consumers to the economic import of patronizing business owners who smuggle poultry products into the country.

    He noted that if such patronage continued, indigenous poultry farmers and marketers would not grow as desired, as the money spent on smuggled products would only go to producers of the products.
