The Zambia Compulsory Standards Agency (ZCSA) has instituted investigations into allegations that there is counterfeit Blue band butter on the market to ascertain the objectiveness of the matter.

This follows the video circulating on social media on the Blue Band Fat spread, which could not melt in boiling water.

Agency Public Relations Officer, Lee Hamunji says as at 11th July, 2018, ZCSA Inspectors visited Pick N Pay Woodlands in Lusaka, where the product is purported to have been bought and collected samples from different batches which have since been submitted for laboratory analysis.

Mr Hamunji states that the impending results will direct ZCSA follow up action which will be made public as soon as possible.

He has also appealed to the claimant in the video to come forth and lodge in a formal complaint to the regulator.
