The Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, Prof Moji Adeyeye, has prompted Nigerians to abstain from storing cooked food in the refrigerator for more than three days.

Adeyeye made this known in a statement at the World Food Day on Tuesday signed by the agency’s Resident Media Consultant, Sayo Akintola.

The World Food Day celebrated annually on June 7 was established by the United Nations General Assembly task force in 2018 to raise awareness and encourage efforts to prevent, detect and address public health risks linked to unsafe food.

Adeyeye, who said this in commemoration of the 2024 World Food Safety Day with the theme, ‘Food Safety: Prepare for the Unexpected’, urged stakeholders in the food supply chain to take deliberate actions to institute a food safety culture in their operations to mitigate food hazards and risks that could compromise food safety.

Adeyeye remarked that food safety is not only important for public health but a sine qua non for economic development and food security. She also included that food safety is a collective responsibility, adding that everyone from producers to consumers needs to play their part to ensure food safety.
