Beware of fake ‘insulin tea’ in circulation, NAFDAC alerts

THE National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has warned against the use of a certain “insulin tea” in circulation.

The agency said the “insulin tea” is a fake diabetes remedy which is unwholesome and not fit for human consumption.

The Director-General of NAFDAC, Mojisola Adeyeye said in a statement, yesterday, that the product, which claims to reduce blood sugar level, is unregistered and unsafe for consumption.

She explained that the NAFDAC registration number on the product is fake, and called on the public to report anyone engaged in the distribution and sale of the said tea to the agency.

Adeyeye said, “NAFDAC wishes to notify the public of the circulation of an unregistered and 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 also advised consumers to report adverse effects related to the use of regulated products to the nearest NAFDAC office, through the toll free line — NAFDAC PRASCOR 20543 — from all networks or via [email protected].

the head of NAFDAC added that Nigerians could also use the e-reporting platform available on the NAFDAC website (www.nafdac.gov.ng).
