The National Agency for Food And Drug Administration And Control (NAFDAC) has issued a strong warning to people who consume imported or smuggled frozen meat such as chicken and turkey in Nigeria. NAFDAC Director General, Dr Paul Orhii, who gave the warning at a media briefing in Lagos, said that these foods have been implicated in non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and antibiotics resistance.

These diseases include cancer, kidney disease, and hypertension amongst others. He therefore warned Nigerians to stay away from imported frozen chicken and turkey because they have been discovered to be causative factors in these non-communicable diseases.

Dr Paul Orhii said that, these frozen products have been found to contain substances that can predispose one to kidney, liver and lung diseases as well as certain types of cancers and drug resistance bacterial infections.

  1. Nafdac should sensitize the Nigerian public on ways to know imported poultry products, because there are indigenous poultry farmers who also sell frozen food. Buy just saying we should stop patronizing frozen food, they may be sending wrong signals to the general public to not buy them at all.
