Also, the country is said to be losing millions of cedis due to the sale of such products in the country.
Mr Doodo said that the authority will start prosecuting individuals who import substandard products.
“The products and quality we found on the market requires a new strategy and that is to go beyond the seizing of products to prosecute the culprits,” he said.

Meanwhile, the GSA has held several meetings with key stakeholders, including the Ghana Union of Traders Association, (GUTA) to agree on the mode of implementation of the new strategy have been held.
