The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has said investigation into the alleged food poisoning at Marwako Fast Foods has been hampered following what they described as unilateral decision by the Management to destroy food items that were being investigated.

The East Legon branch of the Marwako restaurant was closed for investigations into food poisoning allegation.

Public relations officer of Marwarko Mohammed Amin Lamptey, while speaking to TV3’s Judith Awotwe Tandoh on Thursday May 12 admitted to the claims by some members of the public on food poisoning over the weekend.

According him, the company is still investigating the matter.

A statement issued by the FDA on Monday June 13 which was giving update on the investigations said “The process to establish the root cause of the contaminations has been unfortunately hampered by the unapproved and unilateral decision of Marwako to destroy some of food items whiles the investigation was in progress.

“The FDA has applied the appropriate regulatory sanctions and is also monitoring the implementation of the Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPA) by the management of Marwako Fast Foods to address all the non-conformances identified to prevent any and prevent any recurrences.”
