The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has confirmed that only one person died from suspected food poisoning at Yello SiSi wakye food joint at Oyibi, Accra
This comes after the FDA opened an investigation into allegations of possible food poisoning at the popular “Yellow Sisi” restaurant in Oyibi.
A report released by the Authority on Friday also revealed that a total of fifty-three people showed symptoms of a foodborne illness after eating at the popular Yellow SiSi joint.
“Investigations revealed that a total of fifty-three (53) people experienced symptoms of foodborne disease after consuming waakye or plain rice and tomato stew from a food vendor called Yellow Sisi located at Bush Canteen, a suburb of Oyibi. So far, one (1) person has died, but the exact cause of death has yet to be determined,” the FDA stated.
Meanwhile, the Authority has suspended the operations of “Yellow Sisi” until steps are taken to ensure that their operations are brought into compliance to prevent similar incidents in the future.
Poor food handling methods could have resulted in food contamination, according to FDA inspections.
The waakye vendor known as Yellow Sisi and some of her family members were among the victims who were taken to Valley View Hospital, Oyibi Hospital, Dodowa Hospital, and other institutions after complaining of severe stomach aches following consumption of the food last Friday.
