Kelantan Health Dept seizes unregistered health Products worth RM1.2 Million

The Kelantan Health Department seized 6,864 bottles of unregistered health products for diabetic patients worth RM1,235,532 in a raid at a factory here last month.

Its state director Datuk Dr Ahmad Razin Ahmad Mahir said the raid was conducted on Nov 20 by the Pharmacy Enforcement Branch under the 'Ops Ghost' following a public tip-off and intelligence.

"Following the raid, it was found that the premises was involved in the manufacturing of a health product for diabetics which is sold at RM180 per bottle and is not registered with the ministry.

"The hologram of the product, that allegedly uses apple extract, also uses a fake MeSTI logo," he told reporters at the Kelantan State Pharmacy Enforcement Branch Office here today.

Dr Ahmad Razin said all of the products were confiscated and stored at the branch for further investigation under Regulation 7(1)(a) of the Control of Drugs and Cosmetics Regulations 1984 for manufacturing unregistered products.
