The Western Regional Office of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has destroyed quantities of unwholesome goods retrieved from the various markets and selling points dotted across the Region.

The exercise, which took place at the Takoradi Landfill site, saw quantities of items such as, unapproved aphrodisiacs, food items, medical supplies and cosmetics all burnt to ashes to curtail the health implications of consumers using such products.

Mr. Benjamin Appiasem-Dadson, the Regional Regulatory Officer told the Ghana News Agency that some of the items were also received from individual businesses who on their own complied with expiration rules and regulations.
