No pig DNA in chocolates: Malaysia

Cadbury chocolates in Malaysia have been cleared of containing pig DNA, easing outrage among Muslim groups who had called for a boycott of all Cadbury products, the country’s Islamic body has said. Earlier this month, the health ministry said porcine DNA was found in two varieties of Cadbury chocolates, prompting the company to recall the products.

The Malaysian Islamic Development Department said today that new tests on 11 samples taken from the factory showed no trace of pork in the two products, Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Hazelnut and Dairy Milk Roast Almond bars. Islamic officials said the earlier samples could have been contaminated as they did not come direct from the factory.

The controversy sparked a furore among Muslim groups, who accused the British confectionery company of trying to “weaken” Muslims in Malaysia.
