Tainted Malaysian Biscuits

The biscuit brand of Julie's has a special announcement made for a few of their products due to discovery of contaminated ingredient that was sourced from China. The source this time is not the melamine but Ammonium Bicarbonate.

In the first place, the company can't detect contaminated ingredient when it arrived from China? Nobody checked the quality?

Secondly, how could it have left their factory? You mean to say that their QA/QC team can't detect it prior to their products leaving the factory? Really questionable.

Why? Why? Why?

The Julie's brand is being produced by Perfect Food Manufacturing (M) Sdn Bhd based in Alor Gajah, Malacca.

Each time I travel overseas, this is the biscuit brand that I will stuffed into a big box to supplement my meals, in between meals in fact. My favourite is their peanut butter sandwich biscuit and good thing it has not been recalled. Otherwise, I would have lost confidence with this brand.

Their peanut butter sandwich is my favourite too. But after all this food scare, I've stopped buying any of Julie's products for the time being.

forgot to mention, its puzzling why food industry is using amonia / ammonium based items to process food. the word ammonia / ammonium itself should be avoided 100%

talk about cost saving ~_~
