The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) is ready to probe the cases of alleged food poisoning by some customers of Marwako Food on social media.
Responding to a tweet, the Authority requested of the aggrieved customer; “Can you kindly DM us the details and your contact number. We are interested. Sorry for the inconvenience”.
Marwako, a fast-food eatery in Accra has been trending on Twitter after several Twitter users complained of getting food poisoning after eating there.
The Twitter tirade started after a user, Edward Elohim posted that the fast-food service had served him and several others, contaminated food resulting in food poisoning.
His statement has been rehashed by several other users who have also accused the fast-food service of putting them in a similar situation since the weekend.
Many have since been hospitalised with many of the alleged victims referencing the eatery’s East Legon branch as the possible source of their discomfort.
Marwako @Marwakofastfood gave me and many others in this hospital the worst food poisoning ever.

Yesterday dawn was a horror show for me. Vomiting, running and all that. I was then rushed to legon hospital where I was put on 2 bags of drip and some other medication. My friend also visited the hospital where he was put on 4 bags of drip. 4

This is crazy because I’ve at least 5 children turn up at the ER since Sunday who went out to eat at Marwako over the weekend and they’re all on admission https://t.co/aHmOK9kUsE

Some users therefore urged the Food and Drugs Authority to take action against the company.
Meanwhile, some affected customers have hinted at filing a class action suit against the fast food service.
Marwako fast foods is yet to release a statement to address the concerns.
How Marwako is still in business after how that Lebanese supervisor physically assaulted a Ghanaian female employee is what baffles me.

Avoid Marwako & save your life. I had food poisoning & it has maltreated me since Sunday morning. It was the coleslaw that did me in. I didn’t buy anything else from there. @fdaghana please act quickly.

I never understood the love for Marwako food anyway. I hope all those poisoned come together and sue them.
They have some serious management issues, from the staff abuse sometime back & now this.

The whole Accra is reeling from food poisoning or something from Marwako and you people are literally quiet about it.
It’s a lot of people now in hospital
