CADBURY CHOCOLATE PORK FREE, SAYS MALAYSIAN ISLAMIC BODY

Tests last month to Cadbury Chocolate products revealed porcine DNA according to the Malaysian Ministry of Health. The results of these tests resulted in a boycott of the chocolates by the Islamic community and a suspension of Cadbury's halal certification (meaning that it is not okay for consumption under the Islamic law).

However, new tests to Cadbury chocolate by the Islamic Development Department have not found any traces of pork. The Health Ministry tested chocolate bars from shops and the products may have been exposed to porcine DNA after leaving the factory. The Islamic Developement Department will be visiting the factory for further tests.
