The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) confiscated expired food items from the storage rooms of Zuarungu Senior High School in the Upper East region.

The items were removed by an FDA team during an unannounced visit to the school’s campus in the Bolgatanga East District. The FDA emphasized the importance of adherence to food safety standards in educational settings and warned of potential penalties for non-compliance. Sebastian Mawuli Hotor, the FDA’s Upper East Regional Director, urged school administrators to ensure that their food supplies meet FDA safety standards in an interview with Citi News.

“We went to Zuarungu SHS as one of the school kitchen inspection that we do. In one of their storerooms, we found about five different brands of products which were bad and then I think one out of them was unregistered as well. We got some from neighbouring schools as well as from Buffer stock.

“From the document we requested for, we were given and then the products were the Free SHS mackerel, the royal gold hard wheat flour, pavani evaporated filled milk, paka tomato paste and queen [pilchards] in tomato sauce.”

“These were the products that we found that were expired. These were products that were supplied to the school for feeding the children. As part of our mandate, we confiscated them and taken them for safe disposal and it is something we will repeat from time to time just to ensure that food safety guidelines are adhered to in all food establishments including food kitchens,” he stated.
