Silang Potato cracker banned

The Health Ministry has announced that Potato Cracker (Silang) was found to contain melamine at a level above the standard. Above the standard ... (but sound to me that Malaysia allowed some level of melamine in food !. That's not right).

In addition, Malaysia is darn slow in banning Silang Potato cracker as Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) has announced earlier in September 30, 2008 their detection of melamine in Silang Potato Cracker and Silang Tomato Cracker, both produced by House of Steamed Potato. Malaysia is behind by 17 days !
