KOTA KINABALU, SABAH – The Sabah Islamic Religious Council (MUIS) has frozen the halal certificate of Port View Euro Bakery Sdn Bhd after the discovery of pig DNA in a line of moon cake products.
MUIS secretary, Ramlan Awang Ali said, his party received the report in writing on November 16 from the Sabah Islamic Religious Affairs Department (JHEAINS).
The report is based on the results of monitoring carried out with the Sabah State Health Department and the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs on September 23 following a complaint made against the company on September 16.
“MUIS has called Port View Euro Bakery Sdn Bhd to come to the MUIS office on November 19 to get more information on the matter.
“We found that the company’s halal certificate had expired on May 15, 2021 and the company acknowledged the mistake,” he said in a statement today.
Ramlan said the company had committed Shariah non -compliance related to the “Moon Cake” food product produced.
“This is evidenced by the results of laboratory tests from the Department of Chemistry Malaysia , Ministry of Energy, Science, Environmental Technology and Climate Change dated November 1, 2021 which states that the results of animal DNA analysis for Port View Moon Cake samples show pig DNA,” he explained.
He said the violation and non -compliance of Shariah was very serious and very contrary to the policy of Shariah (Islam) because it involved pig DNA in food.
“THEREFORE, MUIS HAS TAKEN ACTION BY FREEZING THE COMPANY’S RENEWAL APPLICATION DECLARATION IN THE MYEHALAL SYSTEM AND WITHDRAWING THE COMPANY’S MALAYSIAN HALAL CERTIFICATION (SPHM)…
“In connection with the withdrawal of SPHM, this company is strictly prohibited from using SPHM and the Halal Malaysia logo for any business, publicity or other purposes inside or outside the premises in the name of this company,” he added.
He also advised all parties who use Malaysia n halal certificates and logos to safeguard the interests and sensitivities of the Muslim community in ensuring that food, products or consumer goods produced are always Shariah compliant.
