The Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) has blacklisted 17 maize flour brands after they failed to meet quality standards.

The Standards body ordered the withdrawal of 17 maize flour brands from the market over high level of aflatoxins.

While conducting its mandate of Market Surveillance, Kebs has tested maize meal brands and has found some of them to contain levels of aflatoxins higher than the requirement of the relevant Kenya Standard making them unsafe for human consumption,” the letter signed by Director of Surveillance Peter Kaigwara read in part.

The brands are:

1. Dola by Eldoret Grain Millers

2. Tetema by Eldoret Grains Limited

3.African king by African Kings maize millers

4.Unique by Ndosha Limited

5. Mlo by Bidii Limited
