”Formalin is capable of preserving such products for weeks before they get to consumers.

“NAFDAC is alerting Nigerians to this practice. There are enough poultry products in the country than to resort to frozen chicken smuggled in, despite Federal Government’s ban,” he said.

He further warned consumers patronizing business owners who smuggle poultry products into the country, adding that if such patronage continued, indigenous poultry farmers and marketers would not grow.
