Takoradi, Oct.10, GNA – The Western Regional
Office of the Food and Drugs Board (FDA) has described food items in stock at
the warehouse of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) in the
Western Region as wholesome and fit for human consumption.

The food items at the warehouse included bags
of rice, assorted cooking oils and other canned products and toiletries, soaps,
mosquito coils and nets, described as good quality with regards to shelf life.

The Western Regional Regulatory Officer of the
FDA, Francis Odoom after the inspection said, “We are here to inspect whether
some of the products have expired and ascertain the wholesomeness or otherwise
of goods meant for distribution to disaster victims and we are happy to certify
them as fit for use”.

He advised that officials of NADMO ensured
enough ventilation in the various stores and warehouses where such products
were kept.

Mr Odoom noted the dangers in using expired
products and advised consumers to make it a habit to check the expiry dates of
all products they purchased as well as the embossment of the FDA.

The Western Regional NADMO Coordinator,
Mohammed Abdul Ganiyu, said his team would work to prevent disaster and would
do their best to assist the victims who unfortunately were affected.

He was happy that the Sekondi-Takoradi
Metropolis and the Western Region as a whole had not experienced serious
flooding lately and attributed it partly to the fact that his outfit continued
to educate the people on what to do to minimize flooding in the area when it
rained.

Mr. Ganiyu said the NADMO together with the
STMA had desilted some gutters in flood prone areas, which had contributed to
the success chalked.
