FDA suspends operations of Samdoe Enterprise, manufacturer of unregistered water products
The Food and Drugs and Authority (FDA) says it has suspended the operations of Samdoe Enterprise, a water-producing company located at Community 18, Spintex Road,Accra.
According to the FDA, the premises of Samdoe Enterprise was closed down as the company has been engaged in the production and distribution and unregistered brands of water products in an unlicensed, unhygienic manufacturing facility.
In a communique signed by its Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dr. Delese Mimi Darko, she said "Th unregistered water products are as follows: (i) Perfect Ice Drinking Water; (ii) Aqua Link Drinking Water (iii) Leaders Drinking Water"
She added that the Authority’s Inspection Team uncovered major safety and quality issues, including operation in an unsuitable wooden structure, presence of open drains with algae and fungi growth, dirty filters and no pest control regime.
The Authority is therefore cautioning the public not to consume any of unregistered brands listed above.
"The public is once again reminded to check the registration status of regulated products from the FDA website - http://fdaghaa.gov.gh or through the ProPer platform - https://bit.ly/ProPerFDa before purchase
