Hold that bite: Doritos dip deemed non-halal in Brunei

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN (Borneo Bulletin/Asia News Network): Muslims in Brunei are urged to stop consuming the Doritos sour cream and chives dip, which contains white wine vinegar.

The Syariah Affairs Department Halal’s Food Control Division examined the product and found it to contain vinegar made from alcohol.

The department also contacted the producer, Walkers Snack Food Ltd (UK), which confirmed that no Halal certification had been issued for the product.

Importers, supermarkets and retail stores have been instructed to immediately isolate the product at the non-Halal section.

Additionally, the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA) reminded business owners, managers, retailers, suppliers and importers to be cautious when importing products to be sold to the public, and to have non-Halal and Halal products segregated.

This is to protect Muslims from consuming dubious or non-halal products.

The Halal Food Control Division at Syariah Affairs Department can be reached at 7166222 to lodge complaints.
