Accordingly, the company will have to re-export the relevant oil stocks.

Meanwhile, 03 more companies have appealed for a second test of their samples and their reports are due tomorrow (29).

Several companies are currently re-testing samples of imported unrefined coconut oil containing the potent carcinogen Aflatoxin.
