Tasty Time MD Arraigned Over Unregistered Products
He is being arraigned by NAFDAC for allegedly producing and selling unregistered products.
Kole, who was arraigned alongside his company before the Federal High Court in Lagos, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
But in the four charges, marked FHC/L/351c/17, NAFDAC accused Kole and his company of producing and churning out unregistered products such as Tasty Time juice, Glucosaid Energy drink, Tasty Time Pops orange flavour drink, Tasty Time Fitz apple drink, and Tasty Time mixed orange flavour drink.
The agency claimed that the defendants packaged the products at their office located on 1, Kole Street, Ipaja, Lagos.
The prosecutor, Okon Chinyere, told Justice Hadiza Shagari that Kole and his company ran afoul of sections 1(1), 5(a) and 5(e) of the Foods and Drugs and related Products, Cap. F33, Law of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.
She said they were liable to punishment under sections 6(1)(a) and 17(4) of the same law.
But the defendants denied the four charges pressed against them.
In view of his health, Kole was allowed to go home on the administrative bail earlier granted.
Justice Shagari fixed November 6, 2017, for the hearing of his proper bail application.
