Public Can Check Halal Status Via SMS To Jakim

KUALA LUMPUR, March 22 (Bernama) -- Muslims can now get confirmation on the halal status of a product easily and promptly through the short messaging service of the Islamic Development Department of Malaysia (Jakim).

"They only need to type the word "halal" and enter the product's bar code and send it to 32728.

"God Willing, they will receive the reply immediately," parliamentary secretary to the prime minister's department Datuk Dr Mashitah Ibrahim said Wednesday.

Replying to Fadhillah Yusof (BN-Petra Jaya) in the Dewan Rakyat during question time, she said through this method the people would trust the information on the halal status received from an authentic source and not from a third party.

Dr Mashitah said Jakim had increased its enforcement officers to 165 to strengthen the enforcement team.

She said the figure did not include the auxiliary team from the health and chemistry departments and the Malaysian Agriculture and Research Development Institute (Mardi).

Replying to Salahuddin Ayob (Pas-Kubang Kerian) on 90 per cent of the halal products in the country being produced by non-Muslims, Dr Mashitah said the government had set conditions that companies run by non-Muslims must have two Muslim officers.

For bigger halal goods manufacturing companies, she said, they must have a special committee with Muslims as members to conduct internal auditing.

On halal logo, Dr Mashitah said efforts are in progress to standardise issuance of the halal logo, with Jakim as the sole issuer.

"A meeting was held between menteris besar and chief ministers on March 7 to discuss the standardisation.

"God Willing, after this, a meeting will be held with the state religious affairs departments to enable Jakim to be the sole issuer of halal certificates in the country," she said.

Currently all companies could issue the halal logo or logo or words which carries the same meaning, she said, adding that Jakim officers would check such premises.

She said the Attorney-General's chambers and the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry were studying to stop the practice.
