Menjual buah-buahan dan sayur-sayuran busuk boleh dikenakan tindakan mengikut Akta Makanan 1983, kata Pengarah Kanan Keselamatan dan Kualiti Makanan Kementerian Kesihatan Noraini Mohd Othman.

Mengulas laporan sebuah akhbar berbahasa Inggeris tempatan mengenai tindakan pasar raya menjual buah dan sayur busuk, beliau berkata Subseksyen 13(1) akta tersebut menyatakan mana-mana pihak yang menyediakan atau menjual makanan beracun, merosakkan atau memudaratkan kesihatan, adalah satu kesalahan.

Laporan akhbar tersebut pada 11 Julai lepas menyebut tindakan beberapa pasar raya menjual buah-buahan dan sayur-sayuran seperti tomato, lobak merah dan pisang yang telah busuk dengan harga murah dan tidak dikeluarkan dari rak jualan, menimbulkan ketidak puasan hati dalam kalangan pengguna.

"Apabila disabitkan kesalahan boleh dikenakan denda tidak melebihi RM 100,000 atau penjara selama tempoh tidak melebihi 10 tahun atau kedua-duanya," katanya dalam kenyataan hari ini.

Beliau berkata, Kementerian Kesihatan juga menasihati orang ramai untuk menggunakan hak dan kuasa pengguna dalam memastikan produk makanan yang dibeli adalah bersih dan selamat.

"Pengguna juga disaran membaca label serta mengamalkan lihat, hidu dan rasa sebelum membeli makanan bagi mengelakkan memakan makanan yang telah rosak atau tercemar," katanya.

Noraini berkata, sebarang pertanyaan mengenai isu keselamatan makanan boleh disalurkan kepada pejabat kesihatan daerah atau jabatan kesihatan negeri terdekat atau melalui laman web atau Facebook Bahagian Keselamatan dan Kualiti Makanan (BKKM)

It is ironic that Malaysia which is blessed with 2,500 mm rainfall annually, should experience water shortages. For many households, especially in Selangor, Kedah, Penang, Pahang, Johor and Kelantan, water is an unreliable source. Water cuts are frequent. Consumers are always stressed and worried; will there be water tomorrow? Or will they be getting in a WhatsApp message that there will be water disruptions because of a burst pipe or read in the newspaper that thousands or even millionsof households will not be having water supply due to contamination at the water processing plant that serves their area. Consumers are even more stressed when a festive season is approaching or they are planning a family event such as a weeding. Will there be water? Water disruptions have become too common, causing stress and pain for consumers and households. Consumers simply have no trust and confidence in the water system in this country.

Motor Insurance Liberalisation. Do consumers benefit? PDF Print E-mail

Since 1st July 2017, the motor insurance tariffs have been liberalised. Will this benefit consumers? It depends. Firstly, almost certainly markets benefit from liberalisation.  When prices are regulated, there is no incentive to innovate, to target consumers and to take initiatives to provide value that would attract consumers. There is no incentive for service providers to differentiate their products, in relation to consumers, to attract them from other competitors. In theory at least, liberalisation promotes competition in the market and consumers should benefit through a greater range of product or services choices and better value for their hard-earned money. Will consumers then actually benefit? If after the liberalisation, the consumer continues with his old “package” because of “convenience”, and if prices do go up, complain to his friends and family that prices have gone up and maybe gets angry at the  whole liberalisation regime, or on the other hand, if prices go down, feels elated that he has saved some money because of the liberalisation and says liberalisation is great; then the consumers have not benefitted from the liberalisation regime. But if on the other hand, when it is time to renew his motor insurance, the consumer, who now has a range of products and services being offered by various competing insurance companies, takes the time and the effort to understand the products and services and makes a conscious choice to get the best value for his money, than liberalisation would have benefitted him.

Motor insurance liberalisation : How will it affect you? PDF Print E-mail

As has been made public last year, the motor insurance industry in Malaysia is heading towards the eventual removal of tariffs, with full market liberalisation to come in 2019. The move will have a huge impact on things for everyone – find out how you will be affected in this article, done in partnership with AIG.

In the automotive world, it’s a major shift, because one won’t be paying for motor insurance on a fixed price basis as is the case now. Currently, motor insurance premiums for comprehensive coverage are determined by a regulated tariff, based on fixed factors such as the sum insured, vehicle model, age and engine capacity.

As such, consumers in Malaysia have been paying a fixed price for their motor insurance, no matter which company they buy that insurance from. Purely based on the set factors mentioned above, all insurance providers will offer the same price for your vehicle comprehensive insurance.

That will soon change, with the roll out of motor insurance liberalisation starting from July 1, 2017. With a liberalised market, fixed insurance premiums based on set tariffs and price lists will be a thing of the past in Malaysia.

Instead of relying purely on the overly simplistic set factors above, your own risk profile will also be taken into account in the new liberalised market. Essentially, you could pay less – or more – to insure your ride, depending on a number of new factors (detailed below).

This also means that theoretically, no two insurers will have identical pricing for a motor comprehensive policy. With a liberalised market, consumers will have the ability to shop around and compare motor insurance products with different prices and value added items.

Funds for water industry should be managed by ministry PDF Print E-mail

IN the report “Of values and water” (Sunday Star, June 11), Datuk Roger Tan, who recently retired as a National Water Services Commission (SPAN) commissioner, said the Water Industry Fund (WIF) and Sewerage Capital Contribution Fund (SCCF) should be free to manage their resources.


He also said the role of the WIF is to protect and preserve watercourses and water catchment areas, ensuring sustainability of water supply, and to improve water quality as well as provide water and sewerage services in rural developments.


The SCCF is a similar fund for the sewerage sector and currently stands at about RM1.5bil. These entities are controlled and operated by SPAN.


But managing these substantial funds will only distract SPAN from its original function as a regulator, implementing and enforcing the water supply and sewerage services laws in Peninsular Malaysia and the Federal Territories of Putrajaya and Labuan.


I fully agree that the WIF and SCCF should not be under SPAN.


They should instead be placed under the Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry, which should have better understanding of the needs of the funds.
