FG Shuts Down Chinese Supermarket In Abuja Over Coronavirus

FG Shuts Down Chinese Supermarket In Abuja Over Coronavirus
The Federal Commission for Competition and Consumer Protection has shut down Chinese-owned Panda Supermarket in Abuja's Jabi area as part of measures to prevent Coronavirus from spreading.

In a series of tweets the FCCPC said it had confiscated some illegally imported frozen food items from China.

The pictures of some of the frozen food products posted on Twitter showed that they had expiry dates of 2089 which further raised suspicion that the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control was not accredited to them.

In a series of tweets, the agency said, "The FCCPC inspected Panda Supermarket, Jabi, on credible reports it discriminated against and had a covert area for Asian nationals. It has confirmed the statement. Seafood and pet products illegally imported from China have been discovered.

"The store was closed on account of the Coronavirus, for cautionary reasons. It also discovered products with expired and irregular shelf life at Panda. Continue regulatory activities to remove all of those products from the supermarket.
