A Facebook post recently went viral warning the public of counterfeit Himalaya Salt Sports Candy that is being sold in Malaysia

The company behind the lemon candy, Big Foot Malaysia, explained ways to distinguish the fake version from the genuine product.

Here's how to identify the fake salt candy from the genuine version:

1. On the front of the packaging, the genuine product has thinner font describing the candy's benefits

2. There is no gap between the Delfi Marketing Sdn. Bhd. and its address on the genuine product

3. The genuine version says "Manufacture in Malaysia By:", as opposed to "Manufacturer in Malaysia By:"

4. The genuine version has a valid lot number

There is no explanation as to how to check whether the lot number is valid on the box. However, according to the post, LOT: 19F02 is a genuine lot number and 19C02 is not.

Meanwhile, netizens have been more concerned with the grammar mistakes on both versions of the candy
