DCI detectives arrested two people and seized a consignment of wheat flour while being repackaged in a house at Siranga, Dandora, Nairobi county.
Joyce Nyambura and Samuel Kamau were found with several bales of expired Exe, Dola, and Golden wheat flours. The goods expired in July.
There are fears some of the flour was already dispatched for sale to members of the public, raising questions on how the two obtained the packaging material.
In September, Kenya Bureau of Standards (Kebs) and public health officials seized expired cooking oil, rice, sugar and flour worth Sh20 million in Eldoret.
Barely a month later, more than 50 tonnes of expired beans where nabbed in a National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB) silo.
The recovery followed in the wake of a countrywide on contraband, counterfeit, and substandard goods.
In June, Interior CS Fred Matiang’i said the war on illicit goods would continue until all the illegal dealerships are wiped out.
