When contacted, Maina said there are various milk powder products in market which were brought in the country without proper documents and procedures.
He expressed concern that some of the substandard products may be sold to unsuspecting residents.
“The board inspectors are conducting inspections in all the outlets, and in case any person is found distributing or retailing these products without relevant documents showing the source and authorization into the country they will be dealt with in accordance with the law,” said Maina.
Maina stated that officers from the board accompanied by those from the Anti-Counterfeit Agency and Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) have embarked on an exercise to root out the illegal products from the market.
