Government agencies, in an untold conspiracy of silence, have left consumers asking many questions as to why the long expired beef and chicken sausages impounded at Nakuru’s Cleanshelf supermarket on November 26 – have not resulted in any arrests or prosecutions.
Instead both the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) and the public health officials at the Nakuru County have gone mute.
The sausages (chilled and frozen) expired several months ago but were found still on display at the retail outlet.
As at Tuesday evening no action had been taken against the supermarket. The retail chain is owned by three brothers – Timothy Kihara runs the company as managing director. Efforts to get a comment from him were futile.
Cofek has not yet received a comment from KEBS who are charged with the responsibility for market surveillance.
