A photo of exposed bread loaves in a tricycle has since gone viral online.
Twitter user, @OndoFirstBorn, recently brought to light what many described as one of the many unhygienic ways that bread is handled by both bakers and sellers.
In the photo which he shared on Twitter, several loaves of bread are seen in a pile inside a tricycle popularly known as Keke.
However, what makes the photo disturbing is the fact that most of the loaves are not packaged in nylon or even paper bag but kept bare and exposed to any bacterial or dirt.
@OndoFirstBorn shared the photos and wrote: “Dear fellow Nigerians, please stay safe out there.”

Unsliced bread have actually been through hell, from leaving them open without nylon which allows flies to perch on them, to the seller cleaning them with black dirty foam before putting them inside nylon. Smh

Reason why you should only buy bread from a bakery or of you must get from a vendor then buy bread that must be prepacked b4 delivery.
