FDB warns against patronage of male organ enlargement device on the market

The management of Food and Drugs Board (FDB) has warned the public against patronising devices imported into the country purportedly designed for the elongation of the male sexual organ and the breast.

The devices, which are imported and distributed by a Chinese company, Tianshi, located at East Legon, have cups of various sizes connected to a suction pump.

The cups are fitted to the male organ or the breast and the pump activated to elongate the organ.

The Penis Elongation Device (Tien’s Male Cupping Kit) may be able to cause enlargement and elongation of the penis and short term sexual joy.

However, in the long term, the penis would become very weak like mushroom and non-functional.

In a release issued and signed by Dr Stephen Opuni, Chief Executive Officer of FDB, and copied to the Ghana News Agency, warned that the devices had not been tested and approved by the FDB, hence their safety could not be guaranteed.

It explained that the breast, when pumped with the breast enlargement device (Tien’s Women’s Cupping Kit), would result in the lactiferous duct becoming too long and this could lead to kinking of the duct. As a result, milk produced in the breast would accumulate and lead to breast engorgement and eventual breast infection.

The release said the FDB had not approved any such medical devices and therefore importing, selling and supplying those devices without registering them with the FDB flouted the Food and Drugs Law, PNDCL 305B.

The Law states that “No person shall manufacture, prepare, sell, supply, export or import into Ghana any drug, cosmetic, medical device or household chemical unless the article has been registered with the Food and Drugs Board…”

The management of FDB has therefore, directed the management of Tianshi to halt the importation, distribution, supply, sale and usage of such devices and advised that anyone who had purchased such a device from Tianshi or any other distributor or importer to return it “since the FDB would not deal kindly with anyone found using such unregistered medical devices.

“In pursuance of its mandate, the FDB further directs all companies or individuals who are either using, importing or supplying any unregistered medical device to immediately halt the practice and seek further directives from the Food and Drugs Board,” the release said.

The Board advised the public to cooperate with the FDB by desisting from being subjected to any procedures and risks associated with the usage of these devices and or their purchase.
