He said the agency had also confiscated many cartons of different kinds of drinks at Muhammadu Abubakar Rimi Market, Sabon Gari that were found to be expired and being sold to people.
He said all the expired flour and the drinks were evacuated and taken to the council’s warehouse.
He called on the general public to always check the products’ information before using them.
