Goodbye White Rabbit Candy!!

I bet most of you must have tasted or love this yummylicious candy when you were still a kiddo or even up to this day right...I love this milky candy too except the thin layer of "paper" that is being wrapped around the candy that melts in your mouth..some how I just dislike the taste of it...Anyway, this candy which is made in China has been banned thanks to the irresponsible manufacturers in China. This dairy product is one of the products that contains melamine...It irks me to think of the poor babies affected by the melamine contain in infant formula in China recently...and how heart broken it is to hear those innocent babies that suffered or died due to those no-brain manufacturers in China. What were they (the manufacturers) thinking??!! Don't they have any conscience at all that they are harming those poor babies??!! Don't they ever thought of their own children and grand-children when they formulate such products!! What more when the government in China practices 1 child policy...imagine how those parents of the babies who have passed away are going through now...my heart goes to them and the other babies that are suffering now...hope they will recover soon..and hope the relevant authorities will severely punish those idiots for their lack of responsibility and care for children...see how evil money can be!! I am very angry that if you ask me, I would probably force those morons who have invented those deathly products to swallow their own products till they die!! BTW, Ethan loves his Baby Bytes biscuits...but since it is also made in China, I've stopped buying and giving him that particular brand now. Have to find other types of biscuits which are not made in China! Ban China made products in your home!! Hufffff....!! Do read the article from thestar.com.my below:

China goods ban widens

PETALING JAYA: The Government has widened its ban on dairy products imported from China to include confectionery which contain milk, chocolate (including white chocolate) and other food which contain milk.

The decision was based on the latest information received from Singapore’s Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) which found melamine in “White Rabbit Creamy Candy”, the Health Ministry said in a statement.

The ministry’s food quality and safety department director Noraini Mohd Othman said the widened ban would include “White Rabbit Creamy Candy” and flour-based confections like biscuits. - would be useful if they disclose which biscuits are affected here isn't it...alang-alang punya warning!

“The ministry will seize such products found in the local market,” she said.
Noraini said Malaysia already had an existing ban on any milk or milk powder from China, adding that although the country had imported dairy products from China, the milk in these goods was sourced from Australia and New Zealand.

“As a preventive measure, the ministry has also imposed a Level 6 or automatic rejection on all imported baby milk powder, milk and dairy products via the Food Safety Information System.”

Noraini advised consumers to be aware of the types of items which have been banned and to dispose of any existing goods they might already have.

“Retailers are also advised to report to the nearest state health department or office if such products are sold on their premises,” she said, adding that importers and agents have to stop distributing such products and immediately contact her department.

Noraini said the ministry would also take food samples from across the country to check for the presence of melamine, adding that if it were detected, those involved in the distribution chain could be fined up to RM100,000 or jailed a maximum of 10 years, or both.

Consumers can contact the ministry at 03-8883-3503 for more information.

On Friday, Singapore’s AVA suspended the import of all milk and milk products from China and instructed retailers and importers to recall such products.

Three products were found to contain melamine “ “White Rabbit Creamy Candy”, “Yili Brand Choice Dairy Fruit Bar Yogurt” and “Dutch Lady” strawberry-flavoured milk.
