The National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) on Wednesday said it had sealed 24 bakeries in Borno for operating without license.

The Coordinator of the agency in Borno, Mr Nasiru Mato, made the disclosure while briefing newsmen in Maiduguri.

Mato said the bakeries in Borno were sealed sequel to non-compliance with standard operational guidelines and failure to renew their licenses.

He added that some of the bakeries were closed due to poor sanitation and lack of good hygiene practices.

The coordinator listed the affected bakeries to include Nurul Aini, Nice Bread, D Boss, Save the Nation, Albarka, Ever-Nice and Aljazeera, among others.

“Some of them are not registered by NAFDAC; they operate with fake label, product name and addresses.

“We have about 300 bakeries in the state, we embarked on comprehensive campaign to ensure that they comply with our guidelines in order to check circulation of unwholesome products and protect public health,” the coordinator said.
