Stop Storing Cooked Food In Refrigerator For More Than Three Days -NAFDAC

The Director General of the National Agency for Food and Administration and Control, Prof Moji Adeyeye, has warned Nigerians not to eat food stored beyond three days in the refrigerator.

The DG further warned that cooked food stored in the refrigerator for days is susceptible to contamination by disease-causing pathogens, key agents of foodborne diseases that can lead to death. Adeyeye issued the advice as part of the 2024 World Food Safety Day.

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

The statement read in part: “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.

“She however, urged Nigerians to refrain from storing cooked food in the refrigerator for more than three days, warning that cooked food stored in the refrigerator for days is susceptible to contamination by disease-causing pathogens, key agents of foodborne diseases that can lead to death.”
