(05-23 12:01)

A batch of Pura slim milk imported from Australia was detected to have excessive bacterial count, the Center for Food Safety announced today.
The batch of milk of 1 litre packing size has an expiry date of May 26, 2013.
"A sample of the milk was collected for testing under the regular Food Surveillance Programme. The test result showed that the total bacterial count of the sample was more than 30,000,000 per millilitre," a CFS spokesman said today.
Milk after heat-treatment by means of pasteurization should not contain more than 30,000 bacteria per millilitre, he added.
The CFS has issued a warning letter to the importer, Nowaday International Development Limited. Import of the product has been suspended and the trade has been alerted to the incident.
