The Ghana Food and Drugs Board Authority has banned the popular delicacy turkey tail, also known as ‘Tsofi’ in Ghana.
During an exclusive interview with Tv3, an FDA senior representative stated that turkey tail has been banned in Ghana due to its oil and fatty content exceeding the FDA’s poultry regulations of 15%.
According to him, the portion of turkey consumed by Ghanaians is unhealthy and has numerous health implications.
The ban on Turkey tail has been in place for a long time, but people continue to find a way to get them into the system, according to the FDA.
According to an FDA representative, strict checks are expected to be carried out, particularly during the holiday season, to ensure that these prohibited meats are not available to the public.
The public is also encouraged to report any vendor who sells Turkey tails to customers for consumption.
