INTERNATIONAL DOUGHNUT FRANCHISE, KRISPY KREME SHUT DOWN IN LAGOS FOR USING EXPIRED PRODUCTS

Nigeria’s regulatory agencies have begun a shutdown of outlets belonging to the international doughnut franchise, Krispy Kreme, for using expired products.

The Director General of the Consumer Protection Council, CPC, Babatunde Irukera, said in a tweet on Wednesday, that there were issues with the shelf life of products used in making its doughnuts.

He added:

Expired doughnut mix and fillings which the company repeatedly self-extended and revalidated without regulatory process and approval. Sad about a business under lock, but there’s no dilemma at all when the alternative is a possible risk of consumption of unwholesome food.

The agency made the move after a joint inspection of Krispy Kreme’s Victoria Island outlet in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital.

The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration, NAFDAC, was also part of the team.
