Skip to comments.Malaysia Says Cadbury Chocolates Free From Pork

Cadbury chocolates sold in Malaysia have been cleared of containing pork, the country's top Islamic body said Monday in a statement that should lessen calls for a boycott of the British confectionary company after earlier tests suggested two types of chocolate bar contained pig DNA.
The now apparently discredited findings last month by the Ministry of Health sparked outrage among some Islamist groups in Malaysia, who called for a boycott of all Cadbury's products. Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, is also testing Cadbury chocolates, although the two products at issue in Malaysia are not sold there.
Under Islamic Shariah law, halal products should not contain pork or alcohol. Retailers in Muslim countries, as well as consumers, are highly likely to shun any product that is subject to questions over its halal status.

why do we bend over for these assclowns? just tell em don’t buy cadbury. go back to the middle east and eat whatever passes for chocolate there. i’m surprised some imam somewhere hasn’t declared that eating chocolate is a sin b/c it was invented by infidels.
I knew there was something different about them. They took out the pork.
Do you want pork in your candy just to anger Muslims?
On some days, I damn well do. Just a drop will do.
Could be that Cadbury was mixing lard with the cream and butter. If that is what makes Cadbury taste so good, then please keep doing it.
Everything is better with bacon.
How about putting bacon inside the eggs!!!
One would think they would be more concerned about their missing airliner than whether or not Cadbury chocolates contain pork.
