Evaluation of Food safety hazards and control in selected fast foods outlets in Ifo Local Government Area, Ogun State

Although the safety of foods served in fast-foods in Nigeria has been an ongoing concern, the unhygienic environments where some fast-foods are located contribute to transmission of foodborne diseases. Health experts in Nigeria have said that the shortage of water may affect the success of any safety campaigns. According to the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Program (JMP) for water and sanitation (WHO/UNICEF, 2013), only 58 percent of the country’s 160 million people have access to potable water. Food safety issues in Africa are mostly centered on illnesses that are linked to poor hygiene but food hygiene in homes, schools and markets remains an area of concern. Although outbreaks are frequent in the African region, individual countries have done little to implement surveillance systems for food-borne diseases (Omotayo and Denloye, 2013)]. Some of the challenges to any surveillance system in the country include the fact that in many parts of Nigeria, food poisoning is usually associated with evil spirit, malice or curses (Oyemade, et. al., 1998). Also, the culture of self-prescription prevents cases from being treated at hospitals. Symptoms of foodborne illnesses such as vomiting, diarrhea, fever are regarded as “common diseases” and everyone seems to know the cure and requires only going to the “chemist” to purchase self-prescribed medication.
