The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has disposed off  some unwholesome products estimated to cost about GH₵30,320.00 at the Wa  Municipal land field site.

The products that were confiscated by the Authority during post market  surveillance included both expired and unregistered products that were  being peddled in the market putting the life of consumers at risk.

Mr. Georden Akurugu, FDA Upper West Regional Director said the exercise  was necessary in order to clear the market of unwholesome products to  protect the health of consumers during the festive season.

He advised the public to be careful when buying products from the market  by checking the expiry dates of all products and also whether they were  registered by the FDA or not.

Mr. Akurugu urged consumers to make it a responsibility to check the  safety of all consumables in the market before buying, to avoid spending  money on buying sicknesses for themselves.

They should endeavour to also report to the FDA if they found any expired  or unregistered product on the market for immediate action.
