Fake Egg Sold In Malaysia

George Town (The Star/ANN) – Malaysian enforcement officers have carted away 378 eggs from three stalls at the Pulau Tikus market following claims that fakes were being sold there.
Seven officers from the Penang Domestic Affairs, Co-operatives and Consumerism Department seized three trays comprising 90 eggs from each of the stalls.
A four-member team from the State Health Department has also collected more samples.
The seizures came in the wake of Thursday’s news report that fake eggs, allegedly filled with chemicals, were found in the state of Penang.
Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) president S.M. Mohamed Idris said a housewife complained that she bought a tray of 30 eggs for 11 ringgit at the market but found they did not smell like real eggs and were tasteless.
A Domestic Trade Department spokesman said the samples would be sent to the Chemistry Department or the Veterinary Services Department for analysis.
He said the case, a first of its kind, would be investigated under Section 3 (1)(b) of the Trade Description Act 1972.
A Health Department spokesman said they received instructions to investigate following numerous complaints and news reports.
Egg seller Lim Beng Poh, in her 60s, said eggs at her stall were from her brother Lim Chong Teng’s poultry farm in Titi Serong, Balik Pulau.
“We are sure the fake eggs are not from our stall,” she said.
At the farm, Chong Teng’s wife Tham Siew Kean, 50, said they reared 7,000 chickens which produced about 5,000 eggs a day.
Another egg seller Tan Shuan Soon, 56, dismissed the reports of fake eggs, claiming that an egg’s texture would change between seven and 10 days.
The Star reporter tasted a boiled egg at the CAP’s office and found that it was “not awful but tasteless”.
“Unlike the real ones that have the smell of an egg being boiled, the fake ones were odourless,” she said.
Mohd Idris tried to separate the yolk from the egg white but the yolk broke into smaller pieces.
“In a real egg, the yolk can easily be removed whole,” she said – yahoo news

Strong quake hits myanmar

CHIANG MAI, Thailand (Reuters) – A large 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck Myanmar near the border with northern Thailand on Thursday, killing one woman, police and witnesses said.

Witnesses said the tremors were felt in Bangkok, central Myanmar and as far away as the Vietnam capital of Hanoi where people were evacuated from tall buildings.

Police said a 53-year-old woman in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, had been killed when one wall of her house collapsed. Hospital officials said there were no other deaths or injuries reported.

The quake was centered 111 km (69 miles) north of the town of Chiang Rai, Thailand’s northernmost province.

“In my 40 years, I never felt an earthquake this strong. A glass broke and I had to hold on to a pillar,” Thanawan Sisukniyom, a retired teacher in Mai Sai, told Reuters by telephone.

Witnesses in Chiang Mai, the country’s second-largest city, reported no immediate damage, but said the earthquake was felt strongly.

A witness in the Myanmar town of Tachilek, which borders Chiang Rai, said parked motorcycles fell to the ground and cracks were seen in the road.

TPBS television said electricity was cut off in parts of Mae Sai. The earthquake was shallow at a depth of 6.2 miles.

Chiang Rai province is a sparsely populated, hilly area that forms part of the famous “Golden Triangle,” known for growth of illicit opium and where Myanmar, Laos and Thailand meet.

Somchai Baimuang, deputy director of the Thai meteorological department, urged the public not to panic.

“It’s too soon to tell if there is any damage,” he told Reuters. “Aftershocks are possible in the next two days.”

Residents left their homes in the Myanmar capital Naypyitaw and the biggest city, Yangon. No deaths or injuries were reported.

“Many people fled their homes and laid down on the ground outside away from the buildings. We are still sitting on the ground since there are several aftershocks,” a resident in Kentung, 50 miles west of the epicenter, told Reuters by telephone.

“In some buildings, TV sets fell off the tables and shrine altars fell down. I don’t know anything about the casualties but I think there will be a lot of damage to properties,” he added.
