According to him, the agency had commenced an investigation to trace the manufacturers.

He, however, urged the public to be mindful of NAFDAC and Batch Numbers, Manufacturing and Expiry dates of food, drugs and medical consumables.

‘The general public should understand that quality of hand sanitizers not registered by NAFDAC cannot be guaranteed, and the aim will not be achieved’, he said.
