  • NAFDAC alerts on contaminated Sprite 50cl drink

    The general public has been warned about a tainted batch of unhealthy Sprite 50cl glass bottles that are being sold in Nigeria by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).

    The product was identified as a result of a consumer complaint that the agency's post-marketing surveillance team received and looked into, according to a statement from agency management.

    NAFDAC’s investigation revealed that over five crates of the implicated batch (BN: AZ6 22:32) of Sprite 50cl glass bottles with manufacturing date (MFD: 180423) were discovered to be contaminated with particles.

    “The affected batch of the unwholesome product has been sampled for laboratory analysis in the NAFDAC laboratory and the Agency has directed all zonal directors and state coordinators to carry out surveillance and mop up the implicated batch of the unwholesome product” the statement reads in part.

    NAFDAC promised to find the root cause of the contamination by carrying out a comprehensive current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) Inspection of the manufacturing site to ensure compliance.

    The Agency further directed the company, (Nigerian Bottling Company Limited (Abuja plant) to recall the implicated batch of the unwholesome product and report to NAFDAC for effective monitoring.
