The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has ordered the general public to return all COA FS Food Supplement due to contamination.
This drug which is said to be an immune booster has been recalled because the FDA says laboratory analysis of the product showed excessive microbial, mold and yeast contamination.
COA FS Food Supplement is manufactured by COA Herbal Centre in Cape Coast.
Ever since COVID-19 surfaced, there was a mad rush for the product as many believed it was able to boost the immune system which could prevent one from contracting the deadly virus.
The FDA in a statement to the public said the samples which were analysed were also contaminated with E.Coli which must not be present in a medicinal product.
They warned that the contamination of the drug poses a serious health risk to consumers.
They, therefore, urged all who have the drug in their possession to return it immediately and also tasked the manufacturers COA Herbal Centre to recall the product from the Ghanaian market.
Below is the statement
