The East Legon branch of Marwako Fast Foods has been cleared by the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) to start operating after its facility was closed down weeks ago over food poisoning.

“Following the verification inspection of your facility at East Legon to ascertain the level of implementation of corrective prevention actions (CAPA), the Food and Drugs Authority writes to inform you that it is satisfied with the progress made in the implementation of the CAPA to forestall any future food poisoning incident.
The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) hereby lifts the suspension of catering services places on your facility at East Legon,” the letter to Marwako from the FDA said.
The regulator, however, noted that it would be conducting regular inspections to ensure Marwako complies with all the directives given to it.
