The Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) has cleared two Dola Unga and Kifaru maize flour as safe for human consumption.
The two were among five brands of maize flour that were suspended due to claims of high levels of aflatoxin.
After conducting the inspection, KEBS has found that the levels of aflatoxin in the flour products of Dola and Kifaru to be within safe and acceptable levels and can be consumed by the masses.
Bernard Nguyo, the Director for Quality Assurance at KEBS said they are have now conducted a safety check review of the process of ensuring manufacturers put place measures to produce safe products for public consumption.
In a statement notifying the two flour millers, KEBS wrote:
“The purpose of this letter is to notify you that the suspension of your standardisation mark permit for sifted maize meal branded Dola (Permit Number 1317) is hereby lifted effective from November 20.”
The safety watchdog, however, directed both Kitui Maize Millers and Alpha Grain Millers Ltd to destroy those products that were declared to have high amounts of aflatoxin.
