Fake meat arrestThis article was originally published in Foodnews
OFFICIALS from the Food and Drugs Board (FDB) in Ghana, in co-operation with the country's police force, have arrested a person in connection with the sale of fake Exeter-branded corned beef. In a statement, the FDB said Patience Kabla confirmed having supplied 10 cartons of the fake product to Michael Kissi who had earlier been arrested and prosecuted. It said Kabla is currently in police custody and helping with investigations. The statement advised retailers of pre-packaged food products to buy only from credible suppliers and reminded consumers that the original Exeter corned beef permitted for sale in Ghana has a lithograph labelling. "The public is therefore alerted to look out for this feature when buying any Exeter Corned Beef," it added.
