They only wore orange polo shirts with their faces exposed to the chemicals in the factory which had no visible fire extinguishers in its premises - exposing them to the risk of possible fire explosion.

The GhanaWeb team noticed that all the products were labelled in Chinese with very little English inscriptions which the workers had no idea what they meant. Also, expiry dates were not clearly printed on the food additives used for the drinks.

With respect to the expiry dates of products, a machine which was understood to imprint the dates on the products was being operated by two female workers.
