In a post on her social media page, The lawmaker called on the Agric Ministry, together with the Food and Drugs Authority and the Ghana Standards Authority to take keen interest in the disturbing development.
She narrated that she bought ‘firm and ripe’ tomatoes which she kept in her fridge but ‘strangely’ they had gone bad in less than a week.
Hon. Dzifa also questioned if there were genetically modified foods being in the country.
“Dear Ministry of Agric, Food and Drugs Authority, Ghana Standards Authority,
you must be interested in what is causing this quick decay of our foodstuffs. They do not last a week even in the fridge.
This “exhibit” is from my fridge. I assure you it is a high-powered fridge. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with my fridge.
Vegetables and fruits cannot last for even a week in the fridge and they discolour and go bad.
I do not buy “amoo kpotoi”. I usually buy both firm and ripe tomatoes so this phenomenon must be investigated.
Do we have GENERICALLY MODIFIED produces in Ghana. What kind of fertilizers are being used for planting…
The flies refuse to settle on smocked fish, koobi and momoni too…that cannot be right.
We are all at risk!” She posted on her Facebook page.
