The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), has raised alarm over the importation and sale of two baby foods, describing the products brought into Ghana by H&H Company Ltd, as unregistered.
A statement signed by John Odame-Darkwah, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, (Food Safety Division), named the two baby foods as H&H Corn Milk Infant Cereal and H&H Nutritious Milk Powder.
It said it “cannot guarantee the nutritional value and suitability of the above products for its intended use as food for infants as it has been indicated on the products”.
The FDA, therefore, advised the general public against the patronage of the products saying “any person who purchases the said products for consumption by infants therefore does so at his or her own risk.
Meanwhile, the FDA has amongst others directed the importer to immediately ensure the recall and withdrawal of the products from the market”, the statement said.
While, assuring the public of its readiness to ensure public health and safety at all times, Mr. Odame-Darkwah’s statement, appealed for information on any practice which has the possibility of endangering public health and safety.
