Police warn of fake chemicals on market

The Police Administration on Sunday warned that Decis and Gostallic chemicals on the market purported to perform certain specific functions are fake and the public should not purchase them.

Samples of the chemicals usually in the form of brown liquid have labels implying that they can enhance the growth of apples and the performance of horses.


According to a statement by the Police Public Relations Directorate in Accra samples of the drugs examined at the laboratory indicated that they are solutions of acetic acid.

The statement said "the products are being used apparently to defraud members of the public."
