The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has cautioned the public to desist from consuming some 6 herbal drugs in the market because they have some secret ingredients with deadly effects.

The Public Relations Officer of FDA told Accra-based Starr FM that “If someone brings a product to FDA to register as a herbal medicine and then you go and put in something else for the product to appear in a different way outside the purpose for which it was registered then it’s a deception to the general public. We have immediately canceled the market authorization we have given these products so they have been banned.”
