The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has disclosed that only one person died from suspected food poisoning at Oyibi Bush Canteen Junction, in Accra..
This comes after the FDA embarked on an investigation after reports of suspected food poisoning at the popular ‘Yellow Sisi’ food joint at Oyibi.
The Authority in a report released on Friday also revealed that a total of fifty-three people experienced symptoms of a foodborne disease after eating from the ‘Yellow Sisi’ eatery.
“Investigations revealed that a total of fifty-three (53) people experienced symptoms of foodborne disease after consuming waakye or plain rice and tomato stew from a food vendor called Yellow Sisi located at Bush Canteen, a suburb of Oyibi
According to the FDA, its investigations revealed that poor food handling practices could have resulted in the contamination of the food.
When the Daily Graphic team visited the area, it observed that the joint was quiet and the kiosk locked.
Some shops close to the food joint were also closed as it is believed that the shop owners who also patronised the food that day and suffered the side effects, were also said to be receiving treatment in a hospital.
