The pound of fish, according to the consumer, was bought at an undisclosed shopping mall in the UK.

The Foods and Drugs Authority (FDA) is yet to confirm if indeed there is the influx of any such fake fish on the Ghanaian market as consumers are being cautioned to be extra vigilant in the kind of fish they purchase.

This development, yet to be confirmed in Ghana, follows earlier concerns over the proliferation of plastic rice in the Ghanaian market - a development which saw the FDA assure consumers of such rice not being sold in Ghana.
