Jul 14, 2024

SUSPECTED CONTAMINATED SUGAR IMPOUNDED

Police have recovered bags of sugar that are suspected to be contaminated and unfit for human consumption, after a member of the public raised alarm.

In a raid conducted at a small scale shop within Riverside area in Ruaraka, police recovered 48 kilograms of the sugar and a further consignment of over 500 kilograms at a wholesale shop within the same area.

This is after a consumer who had earlier bought half a kilo at the retail shop for domestic use, noticed strange pellets and informed officers on patrol.

The recovery of the suspicious product comes hot on the heels of another recovery in Kisii County over the weekend, where a consignment of the suspicious sugar was found being repackaged for sale to unsuspecting consumers.

The consignment has been kept as exhibit after samples were obtained and forwarded to the government Chemist for analysis.

Meanwhile, members of the public are urged to be on the lookout and report to authorities should they come across the suspicious product that could have devastating effects on their health once consumed.
