Nature Of Danger :

Aflatoxin is one of a group of a naturally occurring chemicals (mycotoxins) produced by certain moulds. They can grow on a variety of different crops and foodstuffs, often under warm and humid conditions.

Mycotoxins can cause a variety of adverse health effects in humans including cancer (some are genotoxic – may bind directly to DNA or act indirectly leading to DNA damage), kidney and liver damage, gastrointestinal disturbances, reproductive disorders, or suppression of the immune system.
Mycotoxins are naturally occurring, so their presence in foods cannot be completely avoided.

Consumers are now advised not to eat the implicated batches and retailers are requested to remove the implicated batches from sale immediately and display recall notices at point-of-sale in stores supplying the implicated batches.
