I have been closely monitoring ShadowFox’s dedicated coverage on the melamine scandal in the past weeks and he has raised quite a number of disturbing discoveries.
In this particular entry, he highlighted that Munchy, an award winning Malaysian food manufacturer did used China based ingredients after all when a press statement they made earlier stated otherwise.
Nevertheless, the most alarming news would be the fact that he highlighted quite a number of products which our very own Ministry of Health claimed to be safe but has failed the melamine test conducted by the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (“AVA”).
The abovementioned entry can be read here.
The list of food products which failed the melamine test based on a press statement by AVA can be downloaded from AVA here.
Whatever he said may be just a blog entry. But when an agency such as AVA made a statement about products failing the melamine test, one can't help but wonder how in the world did these products pass the test in Malaysia. Singapore’s tagline is Integrity, Service and Excellence while Malaysia go on “Malaysia Boleh”. Who should you believe?
Oh, I forgot, Malaysia claimed to be recession-resistant amidst a global crisis. It is certainly not surprising when Malaysia believes Malaysians can be melamine-resistant too. After all, "Malaysia Boleh"!
But I am going stay off those products. On top of that, I am going to be kiasu and kiasi and stay off some other dodgy products based on instincts.
