The Food and Dr*gs Authority (FDA) has suspended Yellow Sisi, a food vendor at Oyibi, for selling food to some consumers that resulted in the alleged death of one and the hospitalisation of 53 others.
This comes after these persons reportedly consumed either waakye or plain rice and tomato stew from a food vendor called Yellow Sisi which is located at Bush Canteen, a suburb of Oyibi.
Per the statement released by the FDA, the cause of death of that one person is still unknown as investigations are still ongoing.
