Yesterday, 13 February, Dutch Lady Malaysia launched an investigation into its Dutch Lady Curious product after a baby reportedly fell ill from consuming it

According to Malay Mail Online, a baby began vomiting and experiencing diarrhoea after drinking from a Dutch Lady pack.

Following a lodged complaint, the company announced in a statement that it is currently investigating the case.

In its statement, Dutch Lady confirmed that it has obtained a sample of the product from the consumer and sent it for testing

The company contacted the consumer to obtain the sample, and has sent it to both its internal lab and a certified independent laboratory for testing.

Furthermore, the company has also met with the Ministry of Health to "resolve this matter".

Managing Director of Dutch Lady Malaysia, Tarang Gupta also said that initial findings from the internal quality control process showed "no quality deviations in the product", and Dutch Lady milk is safe to be consumed
