Indeed, it is clear that Aflatoxin contamination of maize consumed and or marketed in Kenya is a recurrent problem. In 1961, about 16,000 turkeys died due to consumption of aflatoxin contaminated groundnut feeds. Other outbreaks affecting animals and humans have occurred ever since, with the 2004 and 2005 outbreak having the highest morbidity (406 affected) and mortality (157 dead) among human population.
