The East Legon branch of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) was closed earlier today due to the incident.
“The FDA has taken notice of public concerns concerning probable food poisoning at the East Legon Branch of Marwarko Restaurant,” the FDA said in a tweet.
We’ve shut down the eatery and launched an inquiry with other relevant agencies.”
“We want to reassure the public that the matter will be properly reviewed and necessary action will be taken,” the statement said. In addition, FDA is ensuring that its protocols are strictly followed in order to prevent any future harm to the public.”
Marwako has been making headlines over the past few days after one Twitter account (@deezydothis) claimed that Marwako caused him the worst food illness he’d ever experienced.
