Some traders in some markets in Ghana, especially in Accra, have been found to be selling fake, plastic eggs.
The plastic eggs at first glance look real but when shaken slightly appear to contain a lot of fluid. When boiled, they get the appearance of shea butter.
On Wednesday June 14, host of Nkran Kwanso on Accra100.5FM, Blakk Eye, chanced upon some of the eggs at the Madina market near the Zongo Junction.
Blakk Eye narrated that the lady who was selling the eggs claimed she bought about four crates of the eggs at the Madina market. She realised the eggs were plastic when she got home and decided to use some to prepare stew.
The eggs, she said, had a plastic feel when she broke one to use for her cooking.
She, therefore, decided to report to the police who then accompanied her to the market to show them who was selling that particular type of egg.
