Over the last few months, there has been buzz circulating across the nation that plastic rice is dominating the market owing the hike in price of original rice. However, the federal government had vehemently denied these claims despite news making round.
Just recently, a consumer had shared photos of the reported plastic rice he’d purchased unknowingly.
He only discovered after cooking it and decided to let it out to all Nigerians. He also warned that indeed, the rice is in circulation.

On how to recognize the “plastic rice”, he shared:
The plastic rice can be identified by
1- when you cook it. It will lather. Just like omo and water. It will be very much
2- if you smell it. Its smell like a rotten egg.
3- if you can eat it you will know d difference
This is indeed alarming, so watch out carefully before you consume rice.
