Suspension on Dola, Kifaru maize flour lifted


The Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) has lifted the suspension of Dola and Kifaru maize flour as well as Nuteez and Zesta peanut butter after the respective companies complied with the requirements.
KEBs said they have confirmed that indeed the companies carried out corrective measures which had caused them to be withdrawn from shelves.
The bureau inspectors conducted inspections to review and determine the effectiveness of the controls put in place by the companies, which were to ensure that their future products meet the requirements.
Kebs suspended the licenses of five maize millers over the sale of substandard flour including Dola, Kifaru, Starehe, Jembe and 210 maize flour brands as they “do not meet the requirements of Kenyan market standards.”
“You are required to arrange for destruction of the recalled non-conforming products in consultation with KEBS and as required by the law,” KEBS said a statement on Wednesday.
Other suspended brands are yet to implement corrective measures, KEBS said.
They are Starehe Maize Meal, 210 Two Ten Maize Meal, and Jembe Maize.
