According to mStar, she had shared on Facebook some photos of the frozen meat that her husband had purchased from a market in Selayang. She said that she was suspicious of the meat due to its colour and texture that was unlike the beef that she had cooked before. 

Hence, she posted on Facebook saying, “I checked with Google to try and confirm whether the meat was pork or not and the colour looked really similar. Guess this is a lesson not to buy frozen meat anymore. Now what am I going to cook?”



Her status went viral and many netizens were debating whether the meat she had bought was really pork or beef. Mazliana said that she didn’t blame anyone for the alleged mistake and said that a mix up could have occurred as the seller was really busy serving many customers and the market was not well lit. 

However, after advice from several people, she decided to lodge a report with the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK) to determine the origin of the meat. They confirmed that they have received her report and on November 24, KPDNKK proceeded to the butcher to investigate the case of the mysterious meat.

Wan Mohd Yusof Wan Taib, chief enforcement officer said that he had visited the seller’s stall along with four other officers to check this issue, which took the whole morning. Gotta be thorough!

After careful investigation, he said, “Based on the meat samples that we took from the stall, it has been confirmed that they do not sell pork but frozen beef that’s imported from India. The seller even gave us receipts of the purchase from their supplier but we would also be sending the meat to the lab to check if it could be accidentally mixed with pork.”

Wan Mohd Yusof explained that they could not manage to check the actual meat Mazliana had purchased as she had already thrown it away. He said that if anyone else encountered the same issue, they should refer to the authorities first instead of posting it on social media. 

“Don’t simply speculate about the meat before you get any confirmation, especially on social media. This can cause chaos and would be detrimental to the stall especially if the allegations turn out to be untrue,” he added.



Guess there’s one mystery that’s solved!
