There Is No Trace Of Fake Rice: Scientifically Tested

14bukan.transformedMO, 16/6/2017, JOHOR BAHRU – There is no fake rice in Johor as an analysis on a Thai fragrant rice brand available in hypermarkets here found no foreign element as alleged.

Johor Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism Ministry (KPDNKK) director Khairul Anwar Bachok said the ministry took three samples of the rice for analysis following a 60-year-old man’s claim about buying “plastic-smelling” rice from a Kulai hypermarket.

He said after the man’s claim went viral on social media, enforcement personnel collected samples of the rice from the hypermarket chain on June 7.

Samples of the Thai fragrant rice from its 5kg and 10kg packs as well as rice from the brand’s packing factory in Jitra, Kedah, were sent to the Johor Baru Chemistry Department for tests and the results showed that there was no trace of plastic in the rice, he said.

He also said KPDNKK only received one complaint of fake rice in Pontian in April so far where the consumer claimed to have purchased fake rice from a hypermarket but chemical tests later showed negative plastic elements in it.
