Melamine Cheese Sandwich Buatan Malaysia - Malaysiakini

The Made-In-Malaysia cheese sandwich imported into Taiwan by Golden Kestrel Co that's tested positive for melamine contains 29.818 ppm melamine.

What is this product labelled under Malaysian sun? I wouldn't dare speculate the brand name I heard in case I face a lawsuit and possibly be protected by Syed Botak under his ISA protection law but I have this question for all of you to digest.

Health Minister Liow Tiong Lai said that it is safe to consume melamine-tainted products as long as it is below the 'permissible' level of 30 ppm.

In such a case, if the same cheese sandwich is sold in Malaysia but packaged under a different name, does it mean that our Health Ministry won't remove them from the shelves?

Is it possible that after all the tests conducted, there could be many products tainted with melamine being sold because they passed the 'permissible' level of 30 ppm?

In view of this, we must demand that the Health Ministry release its test results public so that we can make a decision for ourselves whether to buy the melamine tainted products.

I have every reason to believe that melamine tainted products are sold openly in Malaysia but are not taken off the shelves because they PASSED the 30 ppm limit.

Health Ministry protecting who? Businesses or rakyat? I demand that this Health Minister, Liow Tiong Lai resign immediately!
