Nuteez peanut butter pulled out of Kenya and Uganda market

Managing Director Anup Bid (right) said they have invited the relevant authorities to the factory to test the products.

NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 1 – Jetlack Food Limited, makers of Nuteez Peanut butter, has said all its products have been pulled out of the store shelves in Kenya and Uganda despite not having received any letter of correspondence from the Ministry of Interior or Ministry of Health.

A letter from the Interior Ministry had indicated that the butter had exceeded the maximum required limit for aflatoxin.

Managing Director Anup Bid said they have invited the relevant authorities to the factory to test the products.

He added that Director of Public Health was in the factory Friday morning to test the products.

“The results will be out early next week,” said Bid.

Bid raised concerns over the way the situation was handled as the firm was not consulted during and after the tests.
