Ban on Nuteez Peanut Butter Lifted by KEBS

Kenya Bureau of Standards (KBS) has lifted the suspension of the Nuteez peanut butter brand after Jetlak Foods Ltd addressed the gaps that were identified with regard to control of incoming raw materials, production process and final product testing.

“Suspension of the Standardization Mark permit no. 965 for Peanut Butter branded Nuteez has been lifted,” KEBS said.

“KEBS shall continue to monitor the effectiveness of Jetlak Foods Ltd controls for the peanut butter product through market surveillance, factory inspections, and testing,” the statement reads.

The move comes two months after the peanut butter was recalled for aflatoxins contamination.

Investigations had led KEBS to suspended the Standardization Mark Permit number 965 for Nuteez peanut butter.
