The Ghana Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has cautioned the general public to reject social media reports that a rice named “Dana Rice” imported from Pakistan into the country is being infected with a virus.

According to the FDA, no rice with such brand name has been registered by the authority and believe the product which is alleged to be on the market is not.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the Food and Drugs Authority, Madam Delese Darko in a press release declared that a committee is working enormously to make sure that such product does not find its way on the Ghanaian market.

“Our investigations and surveillances indicates that the product is not on the market. However, we are still conducting investigations and if we find the product, we will let the public know and we will take immediately action” she emphasized.

“Meanwhile the FDA would like would like to entreat the general public to aid the investigations by verifying from the authority, any information concerning any product before circulating it on social media” Madam Darko advised.

Also, she insisted that in case the Dana Rice is spotted in the market by the public, they should not hesitate to report it the police and also desist from patronizing it.
