How do you find out if the rice you eat is ‘plastic rice’ or the natural rice that everyone knows?

A video on social media shows a customer of Roosters alleging that the restaurant sold ‘plastic rice’ to her.

In the video, she said that “I just bought this jollof rice from Roosters and I’ve eaten almost half of it and the rice is rubber.”

After eating about half of the jollof, she started squeezing a portion of the rice in her palm. She realised the rice looked and felt different in her palm. The rice also made some crispy sound as well.

She then decided to bounce the rice on the ground. Ordinarily when moulded rice is thrown to a wall it will split but this rice did not split and was instead bouncing.

When the issue of the influx of ‘plastic rice’ came up earlier in the year, the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) downplayed such reports.

A video of the supposed plastic rice was circulating on social media platforms cautioning people against the purchase of that particular brand of rice.

However, the Public Relations Officer of the FDA, James Lartey, told Accra-based Citi FM that the authority’s investigations across the country have shown no trace of such ‘plastic rice’ on the market.
