Kenya cooking oil company responds to suspension

A Kenyan cooking oil company that has had its product temporarily suspended by Kenya’s Bureau of Standards (Kebs) over quality concerns has told the BBC that their product is safe.

“The concern is on the amount of iron in the products. We have done our independent testing and our products are above the Kebs requirement,” Rajul Malde, Director of Pwani Oil Products said.

“We have shared our test results with Kebs and we expect a response this afternoon,” Mr Malde continued.

As we reported earlier, Kebs has suspended the sale of 10 cooking oil products, saying the brands failed routine quality tests.
