    Fallen from Mars I am sure . That's what we can expect to hear from a government that people wish they can send home today . But unfortunately we have to endure the agony until 2025 ..

    Either the local produce oil is also bad or someone has released the imports without checking! Couldn't have fallen off the sky!

    Better to avoid buying all types of coconut,vegetable and sun flower oils as these can come back to market in various forms.

    We don't care which government or party. They should be held responsible for allowing to import sub standard health hazard food items to the country.This has been happening for so many years and not only now. Those who authorize and those traders who import should be punished heavily.
