A laboratory test conducted on COA FS drug by the Cape Coast Teaching hospital has confirmed that the product does not contain E-Coli and is not yeast or mould contaminated as claimed by the Ghana Food and Drugs Authority.
It will be recalled that a press release dated April 17, 2020, and signed by Mrs Delese A.A Darko, the Chief executive officer of the FDA, indicated that COA FS drug contained E-Coli that makes individuals prone to kidney failure.
Among other claims it was said that the supplement made people with weak immune systems get critically sick upon taking COA FS.

In a release on April 21, 2020, the Center for Awareness Global Mission debunked the FDA's claims. They insisted that the drugs rather builds the immune system rather than causing it to deteriorate.
The release further revealed that samples coded “CFS0003 and CF0004” which were taken from the market which the FDA claimed were contaminated have passed microbial tests at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital without any detection of E-Coli or contamination.
Again, the FDA has no data to back their claim.
The Center has taken samples to other independent laboratories for corroboration of the results from the microbial laboratory from the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital.
The statement urged their distributors, agents, and clients to remain calm as they work hand in hand with the FDA to deliver the best for them.
