The rumors, which reportedly started with a video circulating on messaging platform WhatsApp, have made many Ghanaians start to voice their concern on social media.

The concerned citizens called on the Ghana Standard Authority and other liable agencies and institutions to regulate what is imported into Ghana.

Speaking earlier on the issue, a former chairperson of the National Association of Poultry Farmers, Mr. Kwadjo Asante, assured Ghanaians that the said "plastic eggs" were not available on the Ghana market.

He continued to state that the "plastic eggs" were normally used in exhibitions and that some companies who produce these eggs only use them during presentations.

However, on Wednesday, a news report by ClassFM seems to have renewed the fears of Ghanaians and seemingly affirmed the presence of plastic eggs on the Ghanaian market.

The report stated that a radio show host on Accra-based Accra100.5FM stated that he saw some "fake eggs" with a vendor at the Madina Market.

According to the show host, when he confronted the vendor, she revealed that she had bought the said eggs from another retailer inside the market.

The seller stated that she realised the eggs were fake when she went home and wanted to use them for stew.

The next day, she went to confront the original seller with the police but they had reportedly fled the shop.
