More munchy’s & melamine issues

I just woke up and read bernama.com where I found this piece of news.

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 20 (Bernama) — The Health Ministry has sealed a factory producing two local biscuits which are said to contain excessive amount of melamine by the Hong Kong government’s laboratory.

Its Food Safety and Quality Division director, Noraini Mohd Othman said, in a statement Sunday night, the products would be tested for melamine.

She was commenting on a Reuters report that excessive amount of melamine had been found in Munchy’s Mini Crackers with Peanut Butter and Munchy’s Mini Crackers with Cheese Cream, produced by the Munchy Food Industries Sdn Bhd.

Things are not looking good for munchy’s I suppose. A factory has been sealed. Looks like the government really acted well on news from outside. :grin:

On similar note, the munchy’s representative reassured that munchy’s products are safe.

Meanwhile, Munchy Food Industries chief executive officer C.K. Tan said none of its products contain any dairy-based ingredients from China except from Australia and France.

The company will give full amount bribe cooperation to the ministry, he said in a statement.

Here’s the deal. I read somewhere (can’t remember it though), the companies in Australia and France also send the dairy product (read as milk) to China for processing and shit because the work force there is damn cheap. Considering that, this means China work force is so damn cheap that you can still make profit after you include the transportation and logistic charges from the original producing country to China.

Taking this into consideration, if it’s really true Munchy’s ordered their dairy products from Aussie or France, how can they make sure that the dairy products are not related to China at all? You guys take a pick.

Anyway, let’s just be careful not to take any Munchy’s product for the time being. I’ll try to make some time to go to the local dairy store and get a picture of Munchy’s Mini Crackers with Peanut Butter and Munchy’s Mini Crackers with Cheese Cream, so that we can avoid it at all cost.

Also, I found a picture of Munchy’s product imported from China. Check the pictures below. Anyone care to comment ?
