NILAI – Two traders would be charged at the Johor Bahru Sessions Court on 21 February for selling counterfeit milk.
The Minister of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK) Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin told reporters after visiting the Malaysia Halal Analysis Centre here today, that there are sufficient evidence including the chemist’s report to press charges.
Last December, the ministry’s office in Johor Bahru seized 210 boxes of suspected counterfeit Mead Johnson infant formula worth RM42,000 at five locations in the state namely in Iskandar Puteri, Taman Mutiara Rini, Taman Orkid, and Taman Nusa Bestari.
Meanwhile, Hamzah said when asked to comment on the seizure of premix coffee that landed two men in Penang Hospital on 31 January, that the ministry had not received any detailed report on the contents of the coffee.
“We don’t want to make any assumption… when there is enough evidence, we will take appropriate action,” he said. – MalaysiaGazette
