The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), has confiscated hundreds of crates of expired canned Lucozade energy drink at Hong Kong, a suburb of Accra near Lapaz.
Accra 100.5FM’s Nana Ama Agyarko, who first got wind from some whistleblowers about alleged plans by the owners of the consignment to alter the expiry date on the drinks, notified the FDA, whose officials stormed the place unannounced and busted the owners.
The expired drinks, were impounded and two people arrested. The expiry date on the drinks was being altered from September 20, 2019 to September 20, 2020, according to Nana Ama Agyarko.
Additional reports available to The Herald is that some of the products had already been released into the market and are on sale.
It is, however, unclear if those arrested are still in police custody.
It is also unclear, if the FDA is carrying out any market surveillance to retrieve the products already released into the market.
