NAFDAC raises alarm over proliferation of herbal products

The NAFDAC Director General, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, has raised alarm over the proliferation of unapproved herbal products in the country.

She told journalists in Abuja on Monday that most of the herbal medicines were in the form of snuff and oral liquids, which she said were mainly sold by street hawkers.

She also noted that the enforcement team of the agency was commencing a nationwide clampdown on the manufacturers and traders who sold such “uncertified” products.

The professor said the agency has commenced a nationwide mop-up of a substance referred to as “sacra herbs” in circulation.

“We have also intensified crackdown on all illegal manufacturers and distributors of herbal preparations and other unregistered preparations with a view to bringing perpetrators to book and minimising the usage of these substances,” she said.
