The cartel that operates from Kariobangi had tonnes of the unsafe rice in a warehouse where they repacked it into bags bearing the brand name "Red Rose".
DCI boss George Kinoti told reporters that a number of suspects had been arrested during the raid while the owners of the go-down remained at large.
He added that the owners of the go-down had been identified as Kimende Stores but the owners were yet to be arrested.
