The FDA discovers unregistered body boosters and aphrodisiacs in Kumasi

During a swoop at Alabar in Kumasi, authorities from the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) in Ashanti Region recovered unlicensed herbal and Orthodox medicinal items totaling GH700,000.

The practice is expected to be repeated in other markets throughout the Region in order to crack down on people selling unregistered products in the region.

The owner of the seized items, a 35-year-old female dealer, is currently in police custody.

The Ashanti Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has increased market monitoring and says it is on high alert to crack down on illegal pharmaceuticals, including body enhancement goods, at retail markets in the Ashanti Region.

After raiding the Alabar market, where unlicensed and unwholesome medications are commonly sold, FDA investigators and police seized the products from a single retail shop.

Aphrodisiacs, unlicensed herbal remedies, conventional pain medications, and cosmetics were among the commodities. Some of the seized items had unknown languages etched on them, while others were clearly derived from the United States of America.

As part of the exercise, the Authority recently partnered with the police and arrested three people for identical acts. They are currently being processed for court.

John Laryea Oddai Tettey, Ashanti Region Head of the Food and Drugs Authority, voiced grave worry about the influx of unregistered and healthy pharmaceutical items into the markets.

He described the goods as a blend of indigenous and exotic consumables.

“These products will never be approved by the FDA . How these products get into our market remains unknown,” he stated
