Back in December 2017, I wrote an article on how to detect fake baby milk powder sold in Malaysia.
I wrote that article after a news report on fake Enfalac A+ milk powder detected in Melaka.
This time around, it is the suspected fake milk powder for children from Dutch Lady Malaysia.
If you don’t know what’s happening, you can read the news from Malay Mail Online.
Apparently, a child fell ill after drinking the milk powder.
In the news report, the suspected milk powder brand was Dutch Lady Curious (900g).
The news is quite scary for me because both my daughters are drinking the Dutch Lady Create for 4 – 6 years old.
Mommies, if you are feeding milk powder from Dutch Lady to your children, should you be worried?
I was at first and decided to do some research on the internet.
Dutch Lady Malaysia actually put up a Consumer Information guide on their Facebook page teaching consumers how to read the manufacturing information on their packaging.
Check out the picture below.
In short, if you want to know how to identify real Dutch Lady milk powder in Malaysia, the following 4 things are what you should look out for on the packaging.
1) Batch codes beginning with 100, 101, 102 and 103
2) Expiry dates that end with (R), (W1), (W2) and (W3)
3) Packaging variants with both spellings of “Calcium” and “Kalsium”
4) Packaging variants showing the FrieslandCampina logo with and without a white box
If you are still not sure, by all means, contact Dutch Lady Malaysia directly.
You can reach them at their Careline at 1800-88-1191 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
