Two Women Arrested Over Sale Of ‘Coloured Oranges’ (Video)

Two Women Arrested Over Sale Of ‘Coloured Oranges’ (Video)

Two women suspected to be involved in artificially colouring oranges to boost sales have been arrested by the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA).

According to the FDA, the police conducted a swoop at the Madina market last Tuesday after photos and a video of a woman dipping oranges into a colouring solution went viral on social media.

The woman in the video was seen with two big bowls – one containing a colouring solution and the other full of ripe oranges. She dipped the oranges in the solution and waits for some minutes for the colour of the fruit to change to deep yellow.

The Food and Drugs Authority says the colouring is “suspicious” and condemned the practice although it is believed the colour makes the fruit eye-pleasing enough to attract customers.

The officials have therefore arrested the women for questioning and possible prosecution.

The Food and Drugs Authority which faces a huge task of regulating Ghana’s food and drugs market seized over a metric ton of expired goods last April ahead of the Easter celebrations.
