Munchy gives reassurance

On 18 Oct, Hong Kong Centre for Food Safety announced that two Munchy's products was found unsatisfactory with excessive levels of melamine.

1) Munchy’s Mini Crackers with Peanut Butter (net weight: 45g, expiry date: 15.7.2009). The level of melamine detected was 5.4ppm.

2) Munchy’s Mini Crackers with Cheese Cream (net weight: 45g, expiry date: 15.7.2009). The level of melamine detected was 3.8ppm.
Under the Harmful Substances in Food (Amendment) Regulation 2008, the legal limit for melamine in the concerned products is 2.5ppm.

Yesterday, Munchy Food Industries has reiterated that none of its products contain any dairy-based ingredients from China as it only uses those from Australia and France, its chief executive officer C.K. Tan said on Sunday. “We are co-operating with the Health Ministry in Malaysia, which is conducting tests on our product range,” said Tan, adding that the company’s products were previously tested and cleared by independent certification agencies.
