Kerala Food Safety authorities have commenced inspection of coconut oil arriving from Tamil Nadu following the reports of adulteration with palm kernel oil. Thalath Mahamood, former President, Cochin Oil Merchants Association (COMA), told Business Line that the officials had started collecting coconut oil samples for a random inspection from traders in Ernakulam on Tuesday in the backdrop of complaints that spurious coconut oil mixed with palm kernel are landing in various parts of the State.

The team, he said, has collected samples from traders and they will be sent for further inspection. Since the labs in Kerala are not equipped to test the level of adulteration, the samples will be sent to labs accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories.
