The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) says about 170 cartons of expired Charmé Sparkling Non-Alcoholic Red and White Grape Juice products have been retrieved from the Ghanaian market.
According to the FDA, these were being sold to the unsuspecting public.
But upon a tip-off, its officers in collaboration with the Ghana Police Service rounded up the distributor to assist in investigations.
The details of the products are as follows:
Charmé Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Red Grape Juice with Best Before Date as October 25, 2021 and Charmé Non-Alcoholic Sparkling White Grape Juice with Best Before date as August 6, 2021.
“The public is hereby cautioned against consuming the above-mentioned products as FDA cannot guarantee their quality and safety,” it said in a public alert dated Friday, November 26, 2021.
“FDA will retrieve any of these products found during its market surveillance activities.
“Also, persons in possession of these products should return them immediately to any FDA office across the country.”
The Authority also cautioned the public on the wholesomeness of food products as the festive season approaches, particularly the need to be extra-vigilant.
