> Kosmo! reported that dining sets from a company in Japan and China contained ashes of animals.
Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) claimed that traces of animal ashes were found in plates and bowls that were imported since 2006.
Animal ashes is used to strengthen dining utensils and make them look extraordinarily white.
CAP investigation officer Hatijah Hashim said what was of concern was that some of the utensils contained 50% animal ashes.
Animal bones are blended and smashed into powder form and then mixed with water, ceramic and other materials.
This is a matter of concern among Muslim consumers as the production process and the type of animal bones used are not known.
These dining sets can cost up to thousands of ringgit.
