Recall: Pork DNA Found in Cadbury Chocolate in Malaysia

5

If you’re an international snack-manufacturing company making chocolate for a largely Muslim population, the last thing you need is to have your product testing positive for even traces of pork DNA.

But that’s the situation Cadbury Malaysia, a unit of Mondelez International Inc., finds itself dealing with now. Recalls of Cadbury Dairy Milk Hazelnut and Cadbury Milk Roast Almond, sold in stores throughout Malaysia, have been ordered.

Recall Pork DNA Found in Cadbury Chocolate in Malaysia

Pork DNA traces were found in the products by the county’s Ministry of Health during a periodic check for non-Halal ingredients. Two of three samples were reportedly positive for the pork DNA traces.

Most Malaysian food manufacturers use only Halal ingredients because more than 50 percent of the country’s population is Muslim and producers want to adhere to their religious restrictions, which entirely exclude pork.

Cadbury Malaysia is reportedly conducting a full review of its supply chain, with a goal of meeting Halal standards. Its parent company manufactures and markets food and beverage products for consumers in approximately 165 countries.

Mondelez International’s portfolio of nine brands includes Oreo, Nabisco and LU biscuits; Milka, Cadbury Dairy Milk and Cadbury chocolates; Trident gum; Jacobs coffee, and Tang powdered beverage. The company operates in 80 countries in these divisions: Latin America, Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, Europe and North America.

    No mention of the fact that halal has been foisted on the Australia population without them being told. I refuse to buy Kraft, Nestles or Cadbury’s (which used to be an Australian company) because of halal certification. I am not a Muslim and don’t want my food prayed over by them, and then I have to pay for the privilege too. It is also offensive to groups like Sikhs. Most halal certified food is not identified as such eg 80% of food in Australia is now halal. The money going to the Islamic Association to build more mosques, fund terrorist groups etc. A defacto tax on stupid infidels. Visit Halal Choices for Australian readers to see how much food is halal in Australia. 97% of Australians aren’t Moslems yet we are expected to pay for their religion – wrong.wrong. and unfair.

    Nearly every food in America is made with pork based products. Look Mohammed it is already too late. You are already going to hell minus the virgins.
    I do not care whether it is “Halal” or “Kosher” or gluten free you all are a bunch of idiots and you already have been polluted because you allow criminal Elite to use anything in American food products like poisons. Azodiacarbonomide anyone?

    I hope the recalled chocolate products are not thrown away. Hungry people in other parts of Malaysia or the East would be happy to have them to eat.
