Be Active And Save Ghanaians From Expired Products

Krontihene of Atwima Yabi, Nana Opoku Mensah Bonsu has called on the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) to be active by looking out for expiry dates of products in the market festive season.

According to Nana Bonsu, shop owners whose products like drinks and canned foods are nearing expiration reduce their prices and sell adding that, with such expired products, the tendency among some people to consume those expired products is high because the cost of the products usually make it difficult for people to discard them.

He said officials of the FDA should embark on intensive education in the markets and seize all the expiry products to save the lives of Ghanaians during this festive. 

Nana stressed by urging the public to be vigilant when buying drinks and canned foods. He said rusted or dented product is not safe but contaminated so we need to safeguard our health.
