Lagos Seals Big Boss Supermarket Over Sale Of Expired Products by dipoolowoo: 8:59am On Dec 02

A supermarket in Surulere, Lagos, Big Boss Supermarket, has been sealed by officials of the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA). The store was shut down by government last Friday for allegedly selling expired products to unsuspecting members of the public.

A statement from the agency explained that it swung into action in a bid to ensure the safety of consumers from the purchase of unwholesome products and guarantee their satisfaction.

According to the statement, the management of Big Boss Supermarket had continued to display and sell expired products to its customers contrary to the provisions of the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency Law of 2014

Section 4(a) of the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency Law of 2014 empowers LASCOPA to protect consumers against the marketing of goods and services which are hazardous to the consuming public.

The Chief Magistrate of the Consumer Court in Lagos Mrs Dani-Oni, issued an order in Suit No. MSC/154/19 for the seal up of the supermarket which was executed by officials of the agency

It would be recalled that Monitoring Team of LASCOPA on a surveillance inspection visited the supermarket earlier in the year and discovered expired products on display in the shelf and issued a Compliance Notice to the supermarket.

According to the agency, during a revisit, another set of expired products were found on the store and the Supermarket Manager allegedly called the bluff of the agency, saying they could do their worse.

“The continuous display and sale of expired products by the supermarket necessitated the court action pursuant to the promotion of Section 4 of the Consumer Protection Law of Lagos State,” the statement said.

LASCOPA, in the statement, reiterated its commitment to ensuring the safety of consumers from all forms of unwholesome products and charged consumable product producers and marketers to prioritize the interest of consumers.

They wouldn't have acted if he hadn't call their bluff?

Selling expired drugs to the public requires swift response and actions from government agencies, but no, they would rather wait until their bluff is called.

Jokers!

Even Shoprite is guilty of this offence of expired goods.

But they are still among the best superstores in Nigeria.

In Lagos, top Supermarkets are fond of selling fake products or expire products.

Major night clubs, most of those Rose, Hennesy Na fake.

LASG health department should look into that asap.

Big Boss Supermarket, never heard of it in Surulere.

I stay in Surulere, those government task force are too corrupt. If you don't play ball/settle, u don buy market. The owner of the Supermarket is guilty also, before the task force approach anyone, he or she must have violated a law. He was caught selling expired products in January, he was given a warning to desist or risk shutting down his supermarket. This is Naija, they let him off the hook because he settled the task force. December don reach, they went there again for inspection, thinking he will give in, the owner of the supermarket told them to do their worst.

If so, expiry dates wouldn't be necessary. It has expired period, poisonous or not.

Can you just imagine the effrontery!
They should be sent to prison.
They and murderers are the same.
Criminals that value money more than human lives.

You will see them even selling expired teething powder for 6 weeks old babies!!
Animals.

Nigerian biZness men are
too unscrupulous,

If the expiry date of a product is
approaching, the normal thing is
to reduce the price to attract buyers
before it expires,

Some will even erase the expired date
& put a fake new date
