Doha and Kifaru maize flour brands have been cleared of excess level of aflatoxin by the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS).
The duo by Kitui Flour Millers and Alpha Grain Limited respectively were among the five maize flour brands banned by the quality monitoring body, but have now been handed relief after meeting the approved quality standards.
“KEBS inspectors thereafter conducted inspections to review and determine the effectiveness of the controls put in place by your firm that were to ensure that your future products meet the requirements of the fortified sifted maize meal specification,” the statement reads in part.
The two millers are expected to destroy the recalled below per products in conformity with the KEBS directive, as the body vows to ensure top most standards in the flour sector.
Starehe by Pan African Grain Millers, 210 Two Ten by Kenblest Limited and Jembe by Kensal Rise Limited are still suspended following the November 9, 2019 ban.
