CPA commends FDA on clampdown on defective diapers on the market

The Consumer Protection Agency greatly commends the FDA for the action taken to clamp down on defective and cheap diapers on the market named ‘Fake Diapers’.

These diapers, upon research by the CPA on several markets, failed the microbial test conducted on them.

Upon further investigation, it was discovered that these diapers are those that are rejected during production in their home countries and meant for destruction but Ghanaians find their way to buy them cheaply and import them into the country for human use.

It was also discovered that because these products are rejected and found among trash, they become contaminated even before packaging them into these plain polyethylene bags before shipping.

Also, where they are kept becomes a factor, thereby showing these high results of failure in microbial tests.

Upon several complaints from mothers across the country in relation to skin rushes and discomfort when some diapers are used on their children, the CPA decided to do intensive research on baby diapers on the market.

The CPA’s research centred on 5 regional capitals in the country, namely Greater Accra, Kumasi, Tamale, Sefwi Wiawso and Sunyani.

Some of these babies had severe nappy rush around the anus and genitalia from mild to severe infections that, if not treated well, could be fatal.

We are therefore calling on all Ghanaians, especially mothers who patronise these substandard products, to stop immediately. We urge them to purchase recognised and approved brands of diapers to save their children from further harm.

We are also calling on the Minister of Health to declare a medical emergency and use every means necessary to stop these defective and substandard diapers from being imported into the country.
