The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has alerted Nigerians of an unregistered and fake insulin tea for the cure of diabetes in circulation.
The agency reportedly warned Nigerians to desist from purchasing or taking the tea as it has an adverse effect on the health of the patient.
The Director-General of the agency, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye reportedly disclosed this in a statement signed by the agency.
Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye reportedly said that:
“NAFDAC wishes to notify the public of the circulation of an unregistered and a fake product called insulin tea, claimed to reduce blood sugar level and ‘delete’ sugar in the body.
“Please note that the NAFDAC number shown on the packaging of this product (Nafdac Reg. No. 01-8662) is fake; the insulin tea poses a danger to the health of the public.
“Members of the public are implored to contact the nearest NAFDAC office with any information concerning the distribution, sale, and use of the fake insulin tea”.
Adeyeye reportedly advised consumers to report adverse effects related to the use of regulated products to the nearest NAFDAC office.
The Director-General urged Nigerians to report such incidents through the toll-free NAFDAC PRASCOR 20543 from all networks and email@example.com.
