The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), with the assistance of the security agencies, has arrested a 64 year old woman for producing and distributing fake Unilever products and other unregistered products.
Madam Adwoa Biama, together with her Production Manager, Kwabena Asiedu was arrested at Biadwoa Enterprise Limited located at Lashibi where they produce the fake Unilever products together with the other unregistered products.
A statement signed by the Dr Stephen K. Opuni, Chief Executive Officer of the FDA and copied to Ghana News Agency said the fake Unilever products being produced by Biadwoa Enterprise Limited are Vaseline, Curl Out and Sun Silk Pomade.
The fake Vaseline bears no manufacturers name or address whilst the fake Curl Out and Sun Silk Pomade bear the address of Unilever.
The other products (unregistered) being manufactured by Biadwoa Enterprise Limited are Bonita Hair Pomade, Mariama Hair Food, Glow Up Hair Pomade, Beauty Hair Food, Esther Hair Pomade and Dasline.
The FDA said the safety of these products cannot be guaranteed.
“Retailers and distributors of FDA regulated products are advised to source their supplies from only recognised dealers so as to avoid dealing in fake and/or unregistered products, which is criminal and therefore makes them equally culpable,” the statement said.
It also cautioned the public against the patronage of the fake Unilever products.
The accused who is currently on bail is assisting the Police in their investigations.
