The Health Ministry is now on high alert over melamine-tainted vegetables imported from China after they learnt from South Korea authorities that they have detected a high level of melamine in vegetables imported from China.
This is a real lembab work from the Health Ministry who are always a few steps behind their counter-part from Singapore or other neighboring countries. Sound like the chemists under the Health Ministry are not properly equipped or they are bone lazy. Time to buck up Health Ministry.

Ministry on high alert over melamine-tainted vegies
KOTA KINABALU: The Health Ministry is now on high alert over melamine-tainted vegetables imported from China.
“We have learnt from South Korea that they have detected a high level of melamine in vegetables they import from China,” said Health Minister Datuk Liow Tiong Lai.
“We have launched a Level 4 check on all food products from China where we will take samples to ensure the products are safe for consumption before releasing them into the market,” he told reporters Saturday after attending the Sabah MCA convention here.
Liow assured that melamine-tainted food products in the country were at the permissible level of 2.5 parts per million (ppm), whilst baby products contained one ppm. - Bernama
