"Ladha Ya Kuku Instant Chicken Noodles Is Not A Registered Product In Ghana" - FDA Warns

The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) is warning the general public to desist from purchasing 'Ladha Ya Kuku' instant chicken noodles since it is not a registered product in Ghana.

According to the FDA, the product has also been recalled from certain countries due to suspected presence of high levels of aflatoxin and pesticides.

In a statement signed by the Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Corporate Service Division, Yvonne Nkrumah, it said "The only indomie instant chicken noodles product that is registered in Ghana is manufactured locally and only occasionally sourced from Nigeria"

The statement also hinted that both products are taken through a rigorous process including testing regimes for aflatoxin and pesticide residues before market authorization is given.

The FDA also mentioned that periodic post market testing is also conducted.

The statement added that in light of the recent recalls in the other countries, the FDA has picked samples from the manufacturing facility in Ghana as well as different points of sale across regions nationwide for testing at the Centre for Laboratory Services and Research.
