Colombo (News 1st); Tests have confirmed that carcinogenic coconut oil was imported to the country by three importers, said State Minister Lasantha Alagiyawanna on Monday (29).

Sri Lanka customs has already informed the relevant importers to re-export these stocks of coconut oil, he said adding importers are, however, entitled to file an appeal for a second test on samples.

The Sri Lanka Standards Institute on Monday (29) said tests have confirmed that coconut oil samples obtained from the relevant importers are substandard.

SLSI said a report was sent to Sri Lanka Customs directing them to implement the necessary measures to re-export the said consignment.
