Kenyans cautioned against contaminated, illegal drugs

05 June 2015, 10:00 Nechesa Chemoi

Kenyans have been asked to be cautious when buying drugs and ensure safety of their medical supplies during the current flooding period.

The Pharmacy and Poisons Board (PPB) asked consumers to be vigilant and report any suspected contaminated medicines on sale to the authorities.

“The quality, safety and efficiency of drugs that are exposed to floods cannot be guaranteed and are harmful to consumers,” the board said in a statement.

The board also asked members of public to quickly report any suspected deposits of drugs washed away by floods for action to be taken.

Meanwhile, PPB has asked consumers to be on the lookout after the release of unregistered and illegally imported medicines that were seized at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

According to the board, the Chief Magistrate Court at Mkakadara released Vega 100mg tablets to the accused person for public consumption in a court order dated May 22, 2015.

“The public, health workers, health establishments including chemists and pharmacies are requested to be on the lookout and are advised to be very keen not to purchase or stock these drugs,” the board said.
