Following the Consumer Affairs Authority’s (CAA) recent discovery of the carcinogen Aflatoxin in the coconut oil samples obtained from the products of a local brand, the CAA has since sealed off the company’s manufacturing facility.

The CAA also stated that the coconut oil stocks released to the market by the company have been removed from shelves and that steps are being taken to proceed with legal action against the company.

According to the Director of CAA Asela Bandara, the brand in question is a leading coconut oil manufacturer in the country called N-Joy.
