KUALA LUMPUR, June 29 (Bernama) -- Marushin Canneries (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd explained today that its canned sardines of the King Cup brand were not among the products removed from the market under an order from the Ministry of Health.


The company’s administrative and human resource manager, Josephine Loo, said in a statement today that the "King Cup - Sardines in Tomato Sauce” product was not on the list of the products withdrawn as reported.


“The statement from KKM (Ministry of Health) clearly stated that (the company’s) Mackerel in Tomato Sauce (among the products recalled), not Sardines in Tomato Sauce,” she said.


A ministry statement yesterday said three brands of canned sardines and three of canned mackerel were found to have worms in them.


As such, the ministry ordered the products to be withdrawn from the market, the statement said.
