Despite Kenya Bureau of StandardS(KEBS) banning several maize floors brands a few days ago, some of the brands in Nakuru County are still selling the floor to consumers.
KEBS in a release warned that flour from the five brands contained high levels of afflatoxin and hence was not safe for consumption.
It went ahead to revoke the licences of the millers ceasing their operations until further notice.
The brands banned included Dola by Kitui Millers, Kifaru floor by Alpha Grain Limited, Starehe by Pan African Millers,Jembe by Kensal Rise limited and 210 Two Ten by Kenblest Limited.
However, Nation carried out a survey in several supermarkets and shops in Nakuru which gave damning details that the banned maize flour brands were still on the shelves.
Some customers who were interviewed claimed that they didn’t have information of some brands being banned.
“I don’t know that some brands were banned. I love Dola flour and it’s a staple for my family,”Dennis who resides in pipeline area told Nation.
Ms. Mary Nduati who resides in White House estate, however, denoted that she was aware of the ban but had to purchase the banned brands since they are cheap.
As Kenyans continue to wonder where things could be going wrong, several exposes continue to unearth the dangerous foodstuffs they have been consuming, including the meat expose, the sugar scandal among others that have been on the airwaves in the recent past.
