During the 888 News Forum last August 2, Director Danilo Bunabon of the NFA in Central Visayas said they have to spray chemicals to protect millions of bags of rice in their warehouses against infestation.
said the chemicals NFA is using are certified safe for use on rice by the Food and Drugs Administration
(FDA), the government agency that regulates food products.
"Those (chemicals) that are found by FDA
to have adverse effects on human health are banned and are not allowed to be used on food.
For NFA, using chemicals that can affect the health of the people is a big crime," Bunabon
