FCCPC Seals Apples And Pears Store For Selling Unwholesome Products by AnonPoet: 7:45pm On Aug 13, 2020
PRESS RELEASE:

FCCPC SEALS APPLES AND PEARS BUSINESS LOCATION FOR EXPIRED/EXPIRING INVENTORIES AND UNSAFE FOOD/PRODUCT HANDLING

Pursuant to Sections 17(g), (m), (s), (t), (x); 123(1)(c); 131 of the
Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Act (FCCPA)

Thursday, August 13, 2020: On Tuesday August 11, 2020, the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) became aware of representations appearing to show that a consumer, (and presumably others) purchased Laziz vegetable oil in sachets produced by Apple & Pears Ltd from their retail/storage location in Abuja. The representation suggested that the food products purchased were expired, even at the time of purchase.

Upon further investigation and reconnaissance, the Commission discovered the company’s primary facility on the Lagos-Ibadan Express Way. Although locked, innocuous and without signage, the Commission also identified the specific location in Abuja where the company had stored its products.

Having sufficient initial evidence to proceed on enforcement, the Commission conducted investigations at both the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, and Abuja locations. The Commission discovered unreasonably large and inexplicable inventories of Laziz salad cream, Laziz mayonnaise, Laziz vegetable oil in sachets, and Laziz Thousand Island salad cream. In addition, the Commission uncovered what appears to be unapproved and unsafe production, decanting, or repackaging of vegetable oil at the Abuja location.

The location in Abuja is currently under seal by the Commission, and will remain so until the Commission and NAFDAC have confiscated the expired or unwholesome products, and are otherwise satisfied that Apples and Pears can, and will operate safely and legally.


The Commission commends the patriotism of those who bring these pieces of information to the Commission’s attention and encourages consumers to exercise their prerogatives and discretion to notify the Commission of conduct that is considered unsafe, illegal, or unsatisfactory.

If you see something, say something. Our public access channels are at the bottom of this Release.

Babatunde Irukera
Chief Executive Officer

Always checking expiry date on substandard goods instead of insisting on quality goods is why I always snub this guy's.


Any agency that will equally move against substandard good will make people's money benefits them as it is done in other countries.

Why will someone repackage an expired product?.......that is wickedness........nobody wants to loose even at the detriment of other people's health.......don't be surprised that this agency claiming to be working might have asked for settlement and was turned down......everybody is fighting for their pocket not for the masses.......May God help us.

If the goods is substandard, why make it or import it in the first place?...

Of course expiry date is a standard manufacturing guideline, if it was not important why label it?..

How do you snub Govt?

Tufiakwa for Nigeria. Tufiakwa.

This is why innocent people are dropping left and right. Just look at the mold growing on those boxes of food and the sellers are still looking for how they will offload those rotten food items on unsuspecting buyers.

This is fvcking disgusting. Does anyone in Nigeria have conscience anymore? Like wtf.

cry

Fake products has done more damages than covid-19 in nigeria. They should clamp down on those table/sachet pure water factory too. Bakery and sausage roll factory needs to be checked upon. Coca-cola and bigi soft drinks has to be properly examined because these two beverages are not safe for human consumption. I miss dora akunyili in a time like this. Imagine selling expired products to the nigerians because of greedy and love of money. This is total madness!

An unknown nonentity claiming to snub a FG Commission. Wetin Obiano no go see for beer parlour. grin

There is NAFDAC and SON handling issues of quality and standards. If they have failed and this new Commission is trying to protect consumers, I think it is a laudable move.

It's better you sell it very expensively than sell expired products

That's why eating too much imported packaged food is leading to a rise in cancer, diabetes and high BP cases in nigeria

Plus other unhealthy local practices like sniper in beans, using tyre to roast kpomo, using gutter water on vegetables, digging boreholes near toilets and soak away etc

The future is natural, homegrown and organic. In short eat the way village people eat, straight from farm, in a balanced diet, that's the healthiest

Insatiable greed. There was a case of someone importing waste products from out of the country to dump in our rivers sometime ago for some money that cant buy life. Who does that?
