James Lartey cautions the public to be vigilant as businesses will focus more on profits than safety

With a few weeks to the start of Christmas festivities in Ghana, the markets are expected to be flooded with a lot of imported products.

The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), in anticipation of the arrival of different types of goods, has cautioned importers and retailers in the country against exposing the general public to goods that are near to their expiration date.

The Head of Communications at the authority, James Lartey accused some importers and retailers of putting their profits ahead of the public’s well-being. While admitting that the companies are mostly responsible with issues surrounding expired goods, he urged the general public to play its part by doing personal checks on the product to use.
