Toxic Plantain (added with rubber)

Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency (LASCOPA) cautions residents about potential risks in buying fried plantains, commonly called “Plantain Chips,” due to questionable processing and frying practices.

The alert follows a viral image online showing a seller allegedly adding polythene (“rubber”) to the frying oil. In a statement on Wednesday, the agency expresses serious concerns about the health implications for consumers.
