“I’m currently at the hospital attending to some of the affected food vendors who have been admitted. One person has been discharged as I speak.

“We have suspended the activities of the food joint involved. I cannot reveal the name of the Waakye joint for now because we have taken samples to the lab. We can only put the name out after the lab results. Investigations are currently underway,” Mr Kusi said.
