Dari akhbar Utusan Malaysia 24hb Ogos 2010:

Jangan Guna Minyak Sapi Ghee QBB

laporan dipetik dari Utusan

KUALA LUMPUR 23 Ogos – Persatuan Pengguna Pulau Pinang (CAP) menggesa Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri, Koperasi dan Kepenggunaan supaya segera menarik balik penjualan minyak sapi QBB di pasaran.

Presidennya, SM Mohamed Idris berkata, ia berikutan tindakan Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (Jakim) yang

menarik balik status halal minyak sapi itu kerana didakwa mengandungi elemen yang meragukan.

“CAP telah berhubung dengan Jakim bagi mendapatkan kesahihan status halal minyak sapi itu sejak Julai lalu.

Kenyataan rasmi Halal Malaysia - JAKIM

“Jakim menjelaskan bahawa mereka telah menarik balik status halal minyak sapi itu sehingga yakin dengan status halal produk tersebut,” katanya dalam kenyataan akhbar di sini, hari ini. (klik pada imej sebelah untuk baca)

Menurut beliau, Jakim dan Jabatan Kimia telah menguji minyak sapi itu dan mendapati ia mengandungi elemen yang meragukan dan tidak boleh dimakan oleh umat Islam.

Sehubungan itu, beliau menggesa orang ramai supaya menghentikan segera pengambilan minyak sapi itu sehingga kandungannya disahkan halal oleh Jakim.

Sementara itu, Jakim menerusi laman web http://www.halal.gov, turut mengumumkan pihaknya telah menggantung Sijil Pengesahan Halal Malaysia kepada Syarikat QBI Packaging Sdn. Bhd. berkuat kuasa 19 Ogos lalu (baca pada imej di atas).

“Tindakan itu diambil sehingga Jakim berpuas hati status halal produk berkenaan. Oleh itu, QBI Packaging Sdn. Bhd. dilarang menggunakan logo halal Malaysia pada semua produk minyak sapi QBB,” katanya.

GEORGE TOWN: The Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) has called on the authorities to ban bottled water in the country, while also warning consumers not to refill plastic bottles or reuse them as chemical leaching can pollute the water within.

“Consumers should not refill the plastic bottle with tap water,” CAP president S.M. Mohamed Idris said at a press conference on Wednesday, adding that such bottles were made for one-time use only and would not stand up to repeated wear, dishwater treatment, direct sunlight, high temperatures or rough handling.

“Studies show that when subjected to stress tests, the bottles are more likely to leach plastic materials into the water the longer the bottles are reused,” he said.

Mohamed Idris said moreover, there was evidence that a toxic material called antimony (used in making polyethylene bottles) can begin leaching into the water immediately, even when it’s first used.

“In 2006, scientists in Germany found that antimony begins leaching into the water immediately. The longer the bottled water is in storage, the more toxic it becomes.

“High concentrations of antimony can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea,” he said.

Mohamed Idris said Malaysians consumed an average of 100 million bottles of bottled water every year.

“For the last two decades, bottled water has become a part of every social function.

“It’s amazing how Malaysians can be lured into paying exorbitant prices for what flows almost freely from the tap.

“The cost per bottle here ranges from 40sen, if bottles are bought in bulk, to RM5 a bottle in hotels.

“However, it is little known that 90% of the cost of bottled water is used for the label, cap and bottle,” he claimed.

He said it was also not commonly known that coloured bottle caps were designated for natural water, which was normally more expensive, while white caps indicated distilled drinking water.

Mohd Idris also noted that plastic bottles normally ended up in landfills and could take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade.

“It is estimated that 1.5 million barrels of crude oil or 2.7 million tonnes of plastic are used annually worldwide to produce plastic used to bottle water.

“The bottles that are thrown away create mountainous rubbish heaps, while incinerating used bottles produces toxic by-products like chlorine gas and ash laden with heavy metals that are all tied to a host of human and animal health problems,” he said.

As consumers we easily get panic for wrong reason but we frequently neglect proven warnings by food administration authorities and relevant bodies. The recent dairy food tainted with melamine scare is a good example.

Yes, the melamine tainted dairy food scare from China is genuine but that same melamine was then associated with a melamine ware scare. I had received several emails warning of such but hopefully the article from The Star below will help people to understand better.

Melamine fears unfounded

PETALING JAYA: The recent melamine-in-milk scare has caused another round of panic among consumers, who worry that using melamine made utensils would poison their food.

While experts have said there should be no cause for undue concern, consumer officials advised the people to stop using plastics to wrap food.

Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) adviser Dr T. Jayabalan, who is a member of the National Poison Centre, said melamine ware such as plates and ladles were safe for use, “and would not result in death.”

“Even if the melamine utensils leach residue due to extremely high temperatures, it is in a very tiny quantity,” added Dr Jayabalan, who likened this amount to a cube of sugar in a lake.

Melamine is used to make plastic kitchen utensils and plates which are similar in appearance to porcelain.

It is a thermosetting plastic which does not modify in form until exposed to a temperature of above 200°C.

However, Dr Jayabalan urged consumers to avoid using plastic bags, polystyrene boxes and cling wrap to package their food.

“When exposed to high heat from food, the plastic could leach and release chemicals which may disrupt the human reproductive system and affect hormone production,” he said.

“We may not be able to see the effects immediately, but our children will be at risk of mutation and even sex changes,” added Dr Jayabalan, who is also a National Poison Centre member.

Muslim Consumer Association of Malaysia secretary-general Datuk Dr Ma’amor Osman advised consumers to stay away from plastic completely, be it dining in restaurants or buying back food.

“Consumers should use their own containers such as stainless steel tins if they want to bring food home and request for clay or glass cutlery in restaurants,” he said.

“It is our right as a consumer to be served in a good and healthy way,” added Dr Ma’amor.

He said labels should be placed on containers to clearly state any warnings, what it is made of and whether it is microwave-safe.

Fomca chief executive officer Mohd Yusof Abdul Rahman hoped the authorities would conduct more research to determine what is safe for consumers to ease their doubts.

“The Government could also ask hawkers and traders to abstain from using plastic for the time being as it may be hazardous to health,” he added.

Char koay teow seller Lim Cheng Joo, 35, said customers were being health conscious by bringing their own metal containers for take-aways instead of accepting plastic bags and polystyrene boxes.
