Cadbury chocolate cleared in Malaysia after pork scare


Further tests on Cadbury chocolate bars found no traces of pig DNA, a Malaysian minister said Monday, after earlier positive results of the halal-certified confectionaries sparked a scare in several Muslim countries.

Cadbury pulled its Dairy Milk hazelnut and Dairy Milk roast almond products from shelves in Muslim-majority Malaysia last week after a health ministry routine test found the chocolate contained traces of pork.

Pork is strictly banned in Islam, and the test results caused Malaysian Muslim consumer groups to call for a boycott of Cadbury, and Muslim countries Indonesia and Saudi Arabia to start to test the products too.
