PORT KLANG The Selangor Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Department seized a container carrying 784 cartoons of imitation Pepsodent toothpaste at Northport on Thursday. 

The department’s enforcement chief Rosle Hamid said enforcement officers had been monitoring the container for three weeks before finally opening it up. 

"We received a tip off and had been monitoring the container to nab the importer, but so far, no one has come to claim the consignment," Rosle told a press conference at the Customs Department warehouse near here Friday. 

The imitation toothpaste, which appeared to have been manufactured in Indonesia, had arrived at Northport from China, said Rosle. 

He added that the retail price for the seized items were about RM40,000. 

According to Rosli, the department would continue with its investigations to weed out the importer of the seized toothpaste. 

"We will be looking into the shipping documents to find out who brought the consignment in," he said, adding that action would be instituted against the culprit under the Trade Description Act.
