Seized fake milk formula doesn’t meet quality standards


PUTRAJAYA: The fake infant formula milk recently seized by the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry (KPDNKK) in Johor has been deemed safe, but did not meet quality standards.

Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said lab test results on the sample showed that the milk did not meet the stipulated quality standard in terms of fat content.

On Dec 10, the ministry seized 210 boxes of fake baby milk formula, worth about RM42,000, from five supermarkets and pharmacies in the state.

The five premises were located in Iskandar Puteri, Mutiara Rini, Taman Orkid, Nusa Bestari and Taman Daya. The raids were conducted after the ministry’s enforcement unit had conducted surveillance over the past four months.
