But the result of its tests, according to the FDA, proofs that there is no plastic rice on the Ghanaian market.

Addressing a press conference Friday June 23, 2017, the CEO of the FDA Mimi Darko noted the tests proved the supposed plastic rice were authentic rice with a higher starchy content.

She said “there is currently no plastic rice on the market” and the FDA is monitoring the situation in partnership with the international community.
