Danone Dumex, a major diary products producer in Malaysia, has announced the recall of some of its products after New Zealand's diary giant Fonterra announced the contamination. Subramaniam said the recall was only a precautionary measure.

Meanwhile, Fonterra Malaysia said none of its products sold in Malaysia were contaminated.
