The Consumer Protection Council (CPC) has urged Nigerians to be wary of some new and unregistered products being introduced into markets, saying many of such products were injurious to health.

South-West Zonal Coordinator of the council, Garuba Ahmad, made the call in an interview on Friday in Osogbo.

Ahmad said many unscrupulous persons, who were desperate to make money, were flooding the markets with adulterated and injurious new products.

He, however, said that CPC had the duty to carry out market surveillance from time to time to check the introduction of such fake products into markets.

He appealed to consumers to always check for NAFDAC approved number, address of manufacturers as well as manufactured and expiry date of new products before buying them.
