Investigation has it that the company which has its head office at 66/67, Ilupeju, Lagos still produces and distributes nationwide one of its products called Procoldwhich has been banned by the National Agency for Foods, Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC), and World Health Organization (WHO).
According to the health agencies, the drug was banned because it poses a menace like to the user’s health.
When HP contacted the company through a phone call to confirm the news, one of its staff members who failed to disclose his identity confirmed that the company still produces the drugs and was also boasted of the product. “It is our product and we still produce it,” he said.
He also added that the company is unaware of the ban and is of the belief that even if there is any issue at hand, it should be sorted out between the company and NAFDAC.
In addition, it was gathered that the company’s decision of not advertising the product on airwaves and in other subtle ways in recent times could be connected to the ban.
Aside Procold, drugs like Novalgin, Furacin, Vics Action 500 and Droperol have also been banned.
