Breaking!!! Plastic Rice Found In Nigeria, BBC

The "plastic rice" looks very realistic!
Nigeria has confiscated 2.5 tonnes of "plastic rice" smuggled into the country by unscrupulous businessmen, the customs service says.
Lagos customs chief Haruna Mamudu said the fake rice
was intended to be sold in markets during the festive season.
He said the rice was very sticky after it was boiled and "only God knows what would have happened" if people ate it.
It is not clear where the seized sacks came from but rice made from plastic pellets was found in China last year.
Rice is the most popular staple food in Nigeria.
And as we are all shopping now towards the end of the year festivities, there is the need to be very careful where you buy from.
Happy shopping Abuja.
