The Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) on Wednesday recalled 14 hand sanitizer brands over failure to meet standard requirements.

The agency noted that hand sanitizers had been placed in the category of products desirous of constant surveillance and monitoring, due to their significance in the fight against Coronavirus.

The 14 brands, the agency added, have not been outlawed but have been pulled off the market temporarily to allow compliance.

Kebs will work with the affected brands to ensure non-compliances do not occur.
