The products, which are suspected to contain high levels of aflatoxins and pesticides, have not been sighted in Ghana yet.

The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) says Indomie Instant Chicken Noodles with the ‘Ladha Ya Kuku’ inscription has not been registered for public consumption.

The products, which are suspected to contain high levels of aflatoxins and pesticides, have not been sighted in Ghana yet.

Ahead of any possible infiltration into the Ghanaian market, the Authority has increased its surveillance on the markets and wants persons who sight the products to report them.

“The only Indomie Instant Chicken Noodles product that is registered in Ghana is manufactured locally and only occasionally sourced from Nigeria.

“Both products are taken through a rigorous process, including testing regimes for aflatoxins and pesticide residues before a market authorisation is given.

“In light of the recent recalls in other countries, the FDA has picked samples from the manufacturing facility in Ghana and different points of sale across regions nationwide for testing at the Centre for Laboratory Services and Research,” a statement dated May 10, 2022, said.

“Anybody in possession of the unregistered [Ladha Ya Kuku] Indomie products should contact the FDA immediately.”

FDA says its surveillance teams are monitoring the markets for any of these registered products and “will not renege on its mandate to protect public health and safety.”
