The Sudanese Standards and Metrology Organisation reported on Monday that the cooking oil recently distributed to military bases is not fit for human consumption.

The Organisation had examined samples of the oil on request of the director of the Office of the Inspector-General of the Sudan Armed Forces, following complaints by army officers about “a bad smell”.

The Army Support Fund for Consumer Goods has distributed more than 80,000 bottles of expired “El Basma cooking oil” to military units in the country, various Sudanese newspapers reported.
