Lagos State Govt. set to ban sale of bottled drinks exposed to sun

The Lagos State Government says plans are underway to ban the sale of plastic bottled drinks exposed to the sunlight.

The General Manager, Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA), Mr Afolabi Solebo made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Friday.

He said, “Plastic bottled drinks exposed to continuous sunlight are d@ngerous to health and very cancerous. Therefore, it will be part of our public enlightenment between now and the end of the year. So that by 2023, we will not only confiscate such drinks but we will prosecute people that are displaying those products under sunlight.

We also want to have a stakeholders’ meeting with manufacturers of those bottled drinks so as to get alternatives for dummy of the products for distributors to display. The essence of displaying those products in the sunlight is to attract consumers to come buy. So if you can put dummies in the sun it has no effect since dummies look like the real thing,” Solebo said.
He said consumables that k#ll bit-by-bit should be avoided. Solebo also urged consumers to always ensure they get value for their money on all products and services rendered to them. He noted that consumers had a right under the law to complain if they are not getting value and satisfaction for their money; they could seek redress.
