Accra, June 1, GNA – The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has cautioned the general public against the patronage of Exeter Corned Beef purported to have been manufactured in Argentina.
The FDA in a release issued and signed by the Chief Executive Mr Hudu Mogtari said it has been reliably informed that the Manufacturing Plant of Exeter Corned Beef in Argentina has been shut down for some time now and that the product is now being manufactured in Brazil.
“Despite this development, some persons are still importing Exeter Corned Beef indicating the country of origin to be Argentina”, it added.
The Authority has therefore cautioned the public against the patronage of Exeter Corned Beef purported to have been manufactured in Argentina since the FDA cannot guarantee its safety.
The release advised consumers of Exeter Corned Beef to patronize only the ones from Brazil, which the FDA has approved currently.
The FDA further urged the public to report to any FDA office nationwide or the police on any shop or persons found distributing or selling Exeter Corned Beef purported to be manufactured in Argentina.
It assured the general public of FDA’s readiness to ensure public health and safety at all times and therefore appealed to the general public to give any information on persons suspected to be engaged in any practice which has the possibility of endangering public health and safety, through any of the following contacts; 0244337235, 0244337243, 0244337249, 0244563764 or 0244337251.
