The 53 victims who were admitted to various health facilities over the alleged food poisoning at the East Legon branch of Marwako Fast Food have the right to sue the company, the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has revealed.
The management of Marwako took up the medical bills of 53 customers affected by the said food poisoning but the FDA says it does not have any compensation for them [victims] and as such can seek court redress.
The FDA after its investigations has imposed a fine of GHS750, 000 on Mawarko after they were found guilty of eleven infractions and also discarding the evidence of their investigations or the alleged contaminated food.
Asked on 3FM’s Sunrise on Tuesday hosted by Alfred Ocansey whether the 53 victims would be compensated after the payment of these amounts, the Head of Legal and Corporate Affairs for the FDA, Joseph Bennie, explained that “he victims of the poisoning have the right to sue whoever caused the harm”.
