Drug manufacturers, chemical manufacturers, growers, and food processors owe consumers a particular duty of care to produce food and other consumer products that are safe and will not cause public health concerns.
They also need to take part in safe practices for the growing of products so that environmental concerns, such as contamination, do not develop. Because of this they are required by law to Renew their pesticides every year.
Pesticide control product board regulations is the Kenyan Board responsible for renewal approval, monitoring and control of Pesticides. When these large companies are reckless in nature and do not take all necessary safety precautions when producing their products, they have committed a form of negligence. This type of negligence should not occur, and when it does, legal action needs to be taken to hold those responsible accountable for their actions. The action also includes denial of renewing their registration certificate.
