Who Is Eating First?

It seems that our health department has nothing to do with food hygiene and so far no proactive check on all food outlets. There is no-one actively checking on food materials used as well as no checking on utensils and food preparation desktop to ensure that all are not infected by harmful bacteria. May be health department was set up not to handle this area of hygiene but isn't it time for the department to set up microbiology labs to do the bacteria count after incubation of swap-samples and food samples? Basic food labeling and manufacturing and expiry dates should clearly display on the food package.

Maggots eating before you.

 

Malaysia Food Act, if we have one, should be revised to definite clearly what is sound food. For example, the definition of bread and what should be in the bread and in what proportion before you can call it bread. And also what should not be in the bread. Similarly, it should apply to other type of processed food. Would you be surprised if the popular fried fish sticks ingredients is more than just wheat flour and fish but addition of dead lizard meat?

Borneo Post Report:

MIRI: A reporter attached to The Borneo Post received a nasty shock after he found maggots crawling all over a piece of chicken that was part of his dinner.

“I ordered the ‘lalapan ayam’ meal that had two pieces of fried chicken for dinner at a restaurant here. As I was enjoying my meal, I found that the second piece of chicken was covered in maggots on the inside, while the first was fine,” the 28-year-old staff reporter said.

“I immediately called the waiter over and told him about it. He brought the dish back to the kitchen. I was hoping for an explanation but to my disappointment, no one came to offer an apology or explain the situation. After waiting with a friend for about ten minutes, I got very upset and decided to leave.

“At the cashier counter, the cashier expressed his apologies after being asked about what will they do to tackle the situation. He said the meal was not included in the bill as they did not expect it to ever happen at the restaurant. It was the first time that I had encountered such a disgusting sight,” he said, adding that he would be lodging a report with the relevant authorities.

The restaurant’s food safety and handling procedures as to ensure the safety of their food and health of their guests was unsatisfactory, he expressed.

“I hope that more people will be cautious in choosing their favorite dish and foods, especially Muslims, when breaking fast during this month of Ramadan,” he added.
