Francisca Obeng, the director of the FDA’s Central Region, stated that it is essential for people to put food safety first and refrain from consuming foods that could endanger their health, particularly during this holiday season.

“As we celebrate Easter, I want to remind everyone to exercise caution when buying pre-packaged food. Before making a purchase, please make sure to verify the expiration date, she urged.

Under the pretence of a promotion, some foods that are about to expire could be sold for less money.

When visiting food facilities and centres such restaurants and chop bars, she urged clients to insist on seeing the food permits.

She said, “Furthermore, make sure that any food vendor you are purchasing food from likewise has the Street Food Selling Permit.”

Madam Obeng emphasised that the FDA is striving to protect customers from potentially dangerous items.

This will enable us to observe Easter in a way that prevents us from experiencing any health problems thereafter, she continued.
