Nuteez peanutThe government chemist has declared Nuteez peanut butter unfit for human consumption.

In a certificate of analysis, the peanut butter was found to contain aflatoxins more than the required limit.

It is said to contain 24.08ppb, 10ppb more than the required limit.

“The peanut butter exceeds the maximum required limit for total aflatoxins (10ppb) hence not fit for human consumption,” the government chemist analysis read.
