FDA petitioned against use of minors by Blow-chem Ltd to promote alcohol


Dzaisu, Eshun & Partners Legal Consult has petitioned the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on behalf of Samuel Bempong, expressing concerns about the use of a minor in alcohol advertising by Blow-chem GH, a subsidiary of Bel Beverages. The petitioner discovered an advertisement featuring a minor actively promoting alcoholic beverages, prompting the legal firm to highlight potential ethical and legal issues surrounding the involvement of minors in advertising regulated products.

The legal firm urges the FDA to thoroughly investigate the matter and take appropriate action against Blow-chem GH if violations are identified. Emphasizing the risk of normalizing underage exposure to alcohol, Dzaisu, Eshun & Partners underscores the responsibility of companies to align their marketing strategies with ethical standards and legal requirements.

This petition prompts reflection on the need for companies to ensure their advertising content complies with regulatory guidelines, especially for age-restricted products. Industry experts anticipate that the FDA’s review of this case may set a precedent for stricter regulations regarding the use of minors in advertising, particularly for products like alcohol. The outcome could influence companies to adopt socially responsible advertising practices.

Bel Beverages and Blow-chem GH have not released an official statement on the petition, leaving the public awaiting further developments as the FDA conducts its investigation into the alleged misuse of a minor in alcohol advertising and the potential legal consequences.
