Place images of pigs, dogs on products, says consumer body

The Muslim Consumers Association of Malaysia (PPIM) has urged traders to place an image of a pig or dog on any products which use parts of the animals.

Its chairman, Datuk Nadzim Johan, said the move was aimed at preventing Muslims from unknowingly purchasing goods made from prohibited sources.

“For example, not all users know the word ‘porcine’ found on the label of products referring to pork.

“However, if the image of a pig was placed on the product concerned, everyone including the children would know it is made using parts of the animal,” he said during a press conference when commenting on the issue of pig bristle brushes here on Wednesday.

Nadzim said this was not a political, religious or racial issue as the existing law under the Trade Descriptions Act 2011 has stated that products made from pigs or dogs should be labelled accordingly.

Under the same act, the products concerned are required to be placed in a separate location within the premises.

The domestic trade, cooperatives and consumerism ministry had previously given traders a period of one month from Feb 9 to label products made of animal furs and to specifically state if they are made from the parts of pigs or dogs.-16/2/2017
