Publication Date : 26-05-2014
Cadbury Malaysia reiterated its commitment to ensuring that all its products are certified Halal.
Cadbury head of corporate affairs, Raja Zalina Raja Safran, said in a statement on Sunday that it had been actively engaging with the concerned authorities to investigate the two batches of its chocolate products that tested positive for porcine DNA.
“We understand how important Halal is to the Muslim community. It is also of the highest importance to us here at Cadbury. Ensuring that all our products made here in Malaysia are Halal is something we take very seriously,” Raja Zalina said.
"We are withdrawing all impacted Cadbury Dairy Milk Hazelnut (with batch number 200813M01H I2 that expires on Nov 13, 2014) and Cadbury Dairy Milk Roast Almond (with batch number 221013N01R I1 that expires on Jan 15, 2015) immediately.
"We would also like to reassure you that all other products made in Malaysia are not impacted by this test," she said.
"We at Cadbury Malaysia understand that customers are disappointed to hear of the news on the resent test by the Ministry of Health on two of our products.
"We hear you and we value your comments and feedback over this issue," she said.
