211 boxes of Promo Kings disposable masks have been seized at Quick Mart Ruai, the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) said on Wednesday.

According to the agency, the standard mark permit for 58 boxes with 50 pieces and 53 boxes with 25 pieces was suspended due to failures.

“Nairobi Market Surveillance team today (Wednesday) at Quick Mart (Ruai Branch) seized non-complying Promo Kings brand disposable masks,” KEBS said.

20 brands of detergents; shampoos; sanitizers and disinfectants manufactured by Oracle Chemical Ltd at Hardy Karen were also seized on Wednesday.

The agency said the standard mark permits had expired back in 2019.

“This raid was initiated by a complaint,” the KEBS statement reads.
