Source: BBC - Nigerian officials row over 'plastic rice' - The Nigerian food safety agency has denied claims by the health minister that it has cleared the reported "plastic" rice.
A senior official at the National Agency For Food and Drugs (Nafdac) said the minister's Twitter statement "is not their position".
Health Minister Isaac Adewole had tweeted that tests by the agency found "no evidence" of plastic material.
It is not clear where the 102 seized sacks of rice came from but rice made from plastic pellets was found in China last year.
The BBC's Martin Patience in Lagos, who felt the rice, said it looked real but had a faint chemical odour.
The Nigerian food safety agency "We are not done with comprehensive tests. We are still in the laboratory. We haven't concluded analysis and it is not something we can conclude in two days."
"We are yet to conclude the chemical and biological analysis,"
