KUCHING, May 9: Instant noodle brands ‘Ah Lai White Curry Noodles’ and ‘Indomie: Special Chicken Flavour’ have been verified by the Ministry of Health (MoH) to be safe for consumption.
The ministry issued a statement today, clarifying that laboratory analysis carried out on samples of both brands and flavours confirmed that the products complied with the prescribed legislation.
“For imported food, MOH implements six levels of inspection at the point of entry. For the Level 5 inspection namely Test and Release (TUL), food products entering the country will be detained and analysed first.
“Only food products that comply with the standard are then released to the Malaysian market,” it elaborated.
MOH also ensured that any food products found not to comply with the regulations set would be withdrawn from the market.
“The ministry is always aware and concerned about things that may threaten the health of consumers.
“For any information or questions regarding this issue, please contact the nearest District Health Office, through the website http://moh.spab.gov.my or Facebook page: Bahagian Keselamatan dan Kualiti Makanan (BKKM),” it added.
On April 26, MOH ordered a voluntary recall of ‘Ah Lai White Curry Noodles’ and ‘Indomie: Special Chicken Flavour’ noodles following findings by Taiwanese authorities that the products contained cancer-inducing substances. — DayakDaily
