The Consumer Protection Council (CPC) has advised Nigerians to wash their beans and cook same very well before consumption.

This is due to reports making the rounds that retailers now use snipers to preserve beans.

The Council in a statement released by its Director General, Mr Babatunde Irukera, and made available to DAILY POST, advised consumers to also make sufficient enquiries before engaging in new purchases.

CPC said consumers should sufficiently wash their food items before cooking, noting that “in any and every case, thoroughly washing food items before consumption or preparation for consumption is a generally accepted method of protecting and promoting safety.”

”CPC has recently confirmed by credible information that retailers, mostly in the open market are using a pesticide, 2,2-dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate (DDVP) compound, otherwise marketed and known as “Sniper” to preserve beans, and more particularly to eliminate or protect same from weevils.”

While cautioning consumers on the dangers of using unauthorised chemical to preserve food items, Irukera, said though cooking significantly reduces risk of exposure from pesticides, “as most are diminished under extended periods of direct heat in excess of 100 degrees, the best possible caution is to avoid subjecting food items to pesticides not in accordance with prevailing food safety regulations”.

He added that the Council was also collaborating with other relevant regulators to address the emergent situation.

The only time we've ever had someone trying to safeguard what we consume was when Dr. Dora Akunyili was NAFDAC boss. May God bless her soul.

Most nigerians are just desperate. Call it economic desperation. The indices ticked up since 2015. It shows a significant rise in poverty and hardship since the begining of 2015

This is Nigeria, where nothing is safe anymore. Even our traditional egusi soup and stew is being imported from China.

Really?
Truth be told, these can only emanate from Northern Nigeria.
The height of illiteracy in the Northern Nigeria has many dire consequences some of which has made many Nigerians endangered species.
Tell me, is it not height of illiteracy that will make some local farmers resort to using Snipers and other highly harmful insecticides directly on consumables?
And ironically, the major market for most Northern produce are predominantly the Southern Nigeria.
By implication now, many will refrain from consuming beans and the genuine growers of beans will start to count thier loses with the impending drop in demand.

And these dire lapses are part of the reasons why some people will outrightly tell you they dont consume made in Nigeria food items. And the more reason why our Industries arent growing.

THE EDUCATIONAL BACKWARDNESS OF THE NORTH IS A HUGE DRAWBACK ON THE NATION.

(Pls dont attack me, i dont mean to backlash the North... I just said the plain truth)

when properly aerated, the efficacy of the sniper diminishes severely so there's really not much to worry about.
