In a shocking case which is bound to rock the tiny sultanate of Brunei, over 80 cans of food containing pork were found on sale at a shop owned by and frequented by Muslim counsumers. The Brunei Online reported that the Religious Affaits Department's Halal Food Control Section officers made the discovery during a routine check.
The products from nine different brands were confiscated by the officials. The products containing pork included meat loaf, liver spread and sausages.
According to Bruneian law all non-Halal food should be displayed in a separate area and have clear labels indicating that they are only for non-Muslims. The Halal Food Control Section reminds entrepreneurs to inspect all items obtained from their suppliers, while members of the public are urged to be extra cautious when buying canned food.
