The Consumer Protection Council of Nigeria (CPC) alongside the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administrative Control (NAFDAC) have shut down the operation of Krispy Kreme.
The Agencies shuts down the outlets following some complaints from members of the public as to the strange taste of their products (doughnuts) which was later found out to have been as a result of expired ingredients used in making some of their products.
The Director General of the CPC Mr. Babatunde Irukera who made this known on Wednesday via his twitter handle said:
“Joint CPC/NAFDAC operation discontinuing production and sealing key storage of Krispy Kreme B.I location on account of serious regulatory violations by using expired doughnut mix and fillings. Further enforcement activities to follow. Consumer abuse knows no spectrum!
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.”
