Management of Marwako Fast-Food Limited has accepted responsibility for the alleged food poisoning that some customers experienced over the weekend.

Marwako has been trending on Twitter after several users complained of getting food poisoning after eating at their East Legon branch in Accra.

The Twitter tirade started after a user, Edward Elohim, posted that the fast-food service had given him and several others food poisoning.

His statement, posted on May 11, has been rehashed by several others who also accused the fast-food service and called for its closure.

Many have since been hospitalised with the victims citing the restaurant’s East Legon branch as the possible source of their discomfort.

Public Relations Officer Mohammed Amin Lamptey said the team has since instituted an expedited action and will soon uncover the cause of the poisoning.

“It can be caused by the kitchen staff and sometimes even the customer. When the customer is negligent and adds certain things to the food, that can also cause poisoning so for now we’re investigating. You know, in the morning till 3:30 pm, there were no complaints, but those who bought the food from 4:30 pm to 10:00 pm thereabout are those who were complaining.

“So, we’re looking at Saturday and Sunday, but Sunday is where we have the most complaints. Interestingly, on the same Sunday morning till 3: 30 pm, nobody complained. But I can assure you that we’re looking at all the instances and will soon come out with a press release and further get professional advice based on the medical reports submitted by the victims to Marwako,” Mr Lamptey said on Joy News in an interview monitored by theghanareport.com.

He also revealed that his outfit is assisting with the medical bills of some of its customers believed to have suffered from food poisoning.
