"Patronize Only Registered FDA-Regulated Products, Handle Them With Appropriate Care"- FDA To Public


The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has cautioned the general public to patronize only registered FDA-regulated products and handle them with appropriate care.


According to the FDA, the public should also adhere to recommended storage conditions.


In a statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Delese Mimi Darko, she said "The public is strongly advised to patronize only registered FDA-regulated products and handle them with appropriate care and adhere to the recommended storage conditions, eliminating all exposures to the bare sun"


The statement further explained that the attention of FDA has been drawn to a publication titled 'Alcohol in Plastic Dangerous....But FDA Stamps Them - Researcher" in Opera News.


The FDA added that the article is attributed to one Effah Baffo Gyamfi, who alleges in the publication that it is wrong for sachet water to be sold to the public after three days of production.


"According to the publication, the inner part of the sachet becomes 'slippery' which makes the water unhygienic for human consumption. There is however no mention of alcohol in the write-up"


The statement further said "The FDA wishes to reaffirm two things to the public; 'The stringent regulatory procedures n place for the licensing of packaged water manufacturing facilities and the registration of the finished packaged water. Taw materials , packaging materials and manufacturing processes are subjected to these procedures to ensure that the finished products conform to the Ghana Standards for drinking water and mineral water.
