Continental Mills' products contaminated, NAFDAC warns public amid recall

Some of the products of Continental Mills sold in Nigeria have been contaminated, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has revealed.

It was gathered that a contaminated substance was found in Great Value Buttermilk Pancake and Waffle Mix, which are manufactured by Continental Mills, a U.S company, NAFDAC’s Director General, Moji Adeyeye, said on Sunday, in a statement obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

The products are now being recalled after they had been distributed into the Nigerian market as some of the goods contained cable fragments, which were absorbed from the processing line.
