Angry consumers who claim they developed stomach problems soon after consuming snacks they had bought from Quickmart supermarket in Nairobi are demanding remedial action from authorities.
Some of the said consumers recently celebrated the Edi Aldus Hay and say that the assorted snacks they bought from the retail chain proved “unconsumable”.
Quickmart’s driving slogan is Fresh and Easy but many say they are now disappointed and they have challenged top officials of KEBS and the national chamber of commerce and industry to investigate the supermarket
They spoke to The Weekly Vision yesterday urging the Kenya Bureau of Standards to check on the “cooked ready to eat” food items which they claim are “leftovers” or recycled for “days or even weeks”.
This they say is cause for great concern as some people assume the supermarket chain that has been expanding at a lightning speed, taking over the Tusyks and Nakumatt old branches, sells products “above suspicion”.
Quickmart’s driving slogan is Fresh and Easy but many say they are now disappointed and they have challenged top officials of KEBS and the national chamber of commerce and industry to investigate “quality standards” of all goods being sold to the public.
The Weekly Vision investigative desk has further established that fast foods joints that sell chips and chicken, hotels and restaurants both upscale and downtown are selling “re-cycled leftovers” Some of the chicken in these fast-food joints is recycled for weeks and sold to unsuspecting patrons who then develop health-related complications.
They claim to have developed food poisoning symptoms of acute nausea, bloated stomach and diarrhoea.
