NAFDAC bans importation of Indomie Noodles in Nigeria

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has banned the importation of Indomie noodles into Nigeria due to safety concerns. According to NAFDAC Director-General, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, Indomie noodles are on the government’s prohibition list, and only Indomie noodles produced in Nigeria are approved for circulation in the country.

This comes after Taiwan and Malaysia authorities recalled Indomie noodles due to the presence of ethylene oxide, a toxic compound that can cause cancer, in the seasoning. In response, NAFDAC has launched an investigation to ensure that the recalled products are not being sold in Nigeria.
