PUTRAJAYA: The "halal egg" issue which went viral on social media recently has gone overboard, according to the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim).

In a statement here Saturday, Jakim's halal hub division said the action by some egg producers placing the halal logo on each egg was against regulations relating to the halal label.

"For information, the Malaysian halal certificate is issued for chicken eggs to avoid dubious elements in its cleaning and packaging process," the statement said.

Consumers can check the halal status of products via the Malaysian halal directory at www.halal.gov.my or the mobile application myJakim.  – Bernama
