No product approved for body enhancement – FDA

Source The Ghana Report

The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has cautioned the public against purchasing products that purport to enhance parts of the body.

According to the FDA, no such products have been approved on the market.

It added that they were investigating reports of such products.

This was in response to a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, highlighting the promotion of such products by estranged Ghanaian entertainer Fella Makafui.

“We appreciate vigilant individuals who report such concerns. While our team investigates further, we emphasize that the FDA has not approved any product for body part enlargement. The public should refrain from purchasing this and any similar product,” the FDA said.

Responding to other enquiries on the advertisement and sale of love potions and sexual enhancers, popularly known as ‘Kayanmata’, the authority said products with spiritual claims do not fall within its jurisdiction.

“Per the law, the FDA is not mandated to oversee products that make spiritual claims”.

This comes amidst the surge in social media advertising and sales of unapproved products, including teas, creams, pills, syrups, and oils.

Some of the products are purported to be used for the enlargement of breasts, hips, buttocks and the male sexual reproductive organ.

Others also claim to enhance the skin tone, whiten teeth and tighten the female reproductive organ.

In 2021, the FDA warned companies that illegally produce, sell and advertise body enhancement products that they risk prosecution because of the adverse health implications that these drugs can have on consumers.

In a statement, the FDA said its routine market surveillance and monitoring activities had found that body enhancement products were being advertised and sold without authorization and in contravention of the Public Health Act 2012 (Act 851).
