No evidence to claims of frozen squid rings were made from a non-halal material were found after a DNA analysis, said the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA) yesterday.

The ministry said that in response to viral social media claims of frozen squid rings sold in supermarkets were made from a non-halal source, where the Scientific Services Department at the Ministry of Health had carried out an investigation and found no evidence to the allegations.

Samples were collected from several supermarkets by the Halal Food Control Division of the Syariah Affairs Department to be analysed.

Based on the results, the ministry found that the non-halal claims made in social media were false. To avoid Muslims from consuming dubious food or non-halal products, the ministry welcomes the public to inform and lodge complaints if they come across such products.
