Ogun State government has advised eateries and food outlets in the state capital to desist from their unhygienic pollution emanating from unwholesome practices within seven days
The Commissioner for Environment, Mr Ola Oresanya gave the advice after an inspection visit to the affected eateries and food outlets.
Mr Oresanya who expressed displeasure over their failure to comply with hygienic practices despite several warnings encouraged the owners of the eateries and food outlets to improve on their operational hygiene towards safeguarding their customers and residents of the state from the risk of food poising resulting from their present condition.
According to Oresanya, it was discovered that accumulated fats, oils and grease and other food materials in a confined chamber were not scooped daily thus allowing their breakdown by microbes which releases toxic waste.
The Commissioner for Environment noted that the state government would not hesitate to prosecute any eateries or food outlets for food poisoning if the need arose.
Mr Oresanya, assured that the state government monitoring team would continue to enforce the state sanitation laws and urged all eateries and food outlets to be on the right side of the law.
