The decision to voluntarily recall the product came about when two consumer reports were made on the contamination.
To date, both the company and the Malaysian health authorities have not made any move to recall the product from the Malaysian market. In cases like these the precautionary principle should prevail.
In the interest of consumer safety, CAP calls on the Ministry of Health to take up the matter and initiate an immediate recall of the product until its safety can be ascertained.
CAP also advices mothers to breastfeed their infants as “breast is the best”.
