The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has cautioned Ghanaians against purchasing hydrogen peroxide and other medicinal products that it has not approved.
Ghana has recently experienced a surge in COVID-19 cases, and according to the FDA, there has been a shortage of hydrogen peroxide in pharmaceutical facilities due to panic buying, resulting in the rise of “fake and substandard hydrogen peroxide” on the market.
“Pharmacies and Over the Counter Medicine Shops are hereby cautioned to always buy their stocks from licensed wholesalers and manufacturers,” the FDA and the Pharmacy Council, Ghana indicated in a joint statement.
“The general public is also reminded to purchase only Food and Drugs Authority approved hydrogen peroxide and other medicinal products and be on the lookout for the mandatory FDA registration numbers on such products, if they are manufactured in Ghana,” they added.
