Checkpoints for China diary products

Malaysia has imposed a “level six mechanism” to stop the importation of all Chinese dairy products, which are feared to have been contaminated by melamine.

Health Minister Datuk Liow Tiong Lai said that through this mechanism, all incoming dairy products from China at six checkpoints throughout Malaysia would be stopped immediately and returned. “In Malaysia we have six entry checkpoints and all these entry points are on high alert ... any product of this nature coming in through these checkpoints will be stopped immediately and be returned -- it is called ‘level six alert’ at these entry points.

“We would like to inform the public that Malaysia only imports dairy products from Australia and New Zealand. We do not import from China.
