As part of efforts to guarantee the protection of consumers from unwholesome products, the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA) today sealed Ambel Supermarket.

The Supermarket located in Gbagada Phase II was sealed up for displaying and selling unwholesome soft drinks.

Acting on a received complaint from one of the consumers who drank the unwholesome soft drink purchased from the Supermarket, the Special Monitoring Team of LASCOPA, led by the General Manager of the Agency, Mrs. Kemi Olugbode paid a surprise visit to Ambel Supermarket for an impromptu inspection.

During the check, the LASCOPA Team discovered that the product had a trace of kerosene taste, took a sample and conducted laboratory tests and analysis for further confirmation.

Speaking at the end of the inspection, the General Manager, said part of the mandate of her Agency is to protect and promote the interest of consumers from the marketing of products that are hazardous.

She reiterated that the marketing of unwholesome products to consumers remains unacceptable.

Continuing, Mrs. Olugbode said that LASCOPA had to seal the Supermarket pending the outcome of the laboratory test in order to protect consumers.
