Kenya – Clovers and Mother Nature’s Peanut Butter Exceeds Aflatoxin Levels – KEBS

All Africa

Nairobi — Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) has withdrawn the permits of Triclover and Mother nature’s after their peanut butter products were found to exceeded aflatoxin levels.

In a statement, KEBS said factory inspections undertaken in 2018 revealed that Clovers Peanut Butter and Mother nature’s had aflatoxin levels above the acceptable levels of 15 parts per billion.

“In the last 7 months, KEBS has been undertaking market surveillance of peanut butter. 54 samples of peanut butter have been collected from various points of sale and manufacturers from 1st July, 2018 to date and tested,” said KEBS Acting Managing Director Nguyo Bernard.

 

Kenya – Kenya: Govt Warns Over Toxic Peanut Butter as ‘Nuteez’ Maker Refutes Claims

All Africa

The Government Chemist has confirmed the presence of aflatoxin, a poisonous substance, in peanut butter brand ‘Nuteez’, making it unfit for human consumption.

Government Chemist Francis Maina said that the peanut butter was found to be containing 24.08ppb aflatoxin, 14.08ppb more than the required limit.

“It is true that they had high levels of aflatoxin and therefore unfit for human consumption,” he said.

Jetlak Foods Limited has however refuted claims that its product has been declared unfit for human consumption.

The denial came after a viral letter, purportedly sent to the company by the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government, warned about the peanut butter.

But in a rebuttal, the company, in a statement pinned on its website, said it had not received such a letter from the government.
