FDA investigates claims of plastic fish on market

By on

The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) says it is investigating a video circulating on social media, suggesting that there is infiltration of plastic fish on Ghanaian markets.

Though the authority said earlier investigations into claims of plastic fish purchased at Mallam Atta market in Accra proved false, it will treat each report differently in order to ascertain the truth.

“The FDA had earlier received similar complaints of some fish after which investigations conducted indicated that they were genuine fish and NOT PLASTIC.

“The ‘plastic nature’ of the said investigated fish is noted to be a characteristic of the fish,” the FDA explained the earlier claim.

The authority is however cautioning the public against making wild allegations to create fear and panic.

“The FDA however wishes to advise the general public to always verify with the FDA before going ahead to (re)circulate such information since many of such information have turned out to be false after investigation; they rather create public fear and panic.

“The general public can always forward their concerns with respect to FDA’s mandate through the following numbers and social media platforms: HOTLINES :— 0299802932, 0299802933 WHATSAPP: – 0206973065 TOLL FREE NUMBER:- 08001511000 SMS SHORTCODE: – 4015 FACEBOOK: – Food and Drugs Authority-GH,” it advised.
