The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has arrested two persons who were involved in the tampering and forging of an expired date of Lucozade.
The two suspects yet to be identified are in the bosom of the police assisting with investigations.
The 802 cartoons of the expired canned LUCOZADE were deliberately and fraudulently changed from September 2019 to September 2020.
The canned Lucozade was in a warehouse in Hong Kong near lapse belonging to Andiana Royal Ventures. The batch numbers of the detained consignment include SEP 19 L4A and SEP 19 L4B.
The 802 cartons of the relabeled Lucozade were detained by the FDA after a journalist made the outfit aware of the situation on Saturday, September 7, 2019, causing the arrest of two persons who were involved in the tampering of the date markings.
The expiry date of the canned LUCOZADE was deliberately and fraudulently changed from September 2019 to September 2020.
The FDA is, therefore, cautioning the general public to critically examine any canned Lucozade they wish to purchase and NOT patronize anyone having the batch numbers SEP 19 L4A and SEP 19 L4B with expiry date September 2020.
