Malaysia Announces July-Aug Ceiling Price For Chicken, Eggs!

On Wednesday, 29 June 2022, the Agriculture and Food Industries Minister Ronald Kiandee announced that the ceiling price for chicken and eggs for Peninsular Malaysia for July and August 2022.

From 1 July until 31 August 2022, the price of a standard whole chicken would be capped at RM 9.40, but there was no mention of a price cap for the super whole chicken (slaughtered and cleaned without legs, head, liver and gizzard).

The price for eggs would also go up in tandem, with Grade A eggs capped at 45 sen each, Grade B eggs capped at 43 sen each, and Grade C eggs capped at 41 sen each.

Here is a comparison table of the current and new prices, with my calculations on the difference :

Feb to June July to Aug Difference
Standard Whole Chicken RM 8.90 per kg RM 9.40 per kg +5.6%
Super Whole Chicken RM 9.90 per kg NA NA
Grade A Eggs RM 0.43 each RM 0.45 each +4.7%
Grade B Eggs RM 0.41 each RM 0.43 each +4.9%
Grade C Eggs RM 0.39 each RM 0.41 each +5.1%

In general, the ceiling price for chicken and eggs in Malaysia would be raised by about 5%, which is significantly lower than the 33% hike expected if their prices were freely floated.

This subsidy though isn’t really free, as taxpayers are ultimately footing the bill.

According to the government, it will spend RM 369.5 million for this additional subsidy on chicken and eggs, bringing the total amount spent to RM 1.1 billion since February 5, 2022.

CEM014 Eggs : Cook Properly Or Return Them!

Both Singapore and AEON in Malaysia have called for the recall of all eggs stamped with CEM014.

Find out what’s going on, and why you should properly cook all CEM014 eggs, or return them!

 

Food Recall : All Eggs Stamped With CEM014!

On 19 March 2021, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) announced a recall of all eggs stamped with CEM014, due to possible Salmonella enteritidis contamination.

On 20 March 2021, AEON in Malaysia followed up with a recall of the same CEM014 eggs in Malaysia, at about 11:17 PM.

These eggs were all produced by Linggi Agriculture Sdn. Bhd. in Melaka, Malaysia.

Customers who purchased these CEM014 eggs should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

 

Can You Still Consume CEM014 Eggs?

The Singapore Food Agency detected Salmonella enteritidis in the CEM014 eggs, which may cause illness if consumed raw or undercooked.

Symptoms of a Salmonella enteritidis infection include fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhoea approximately 12-72 hours after consuming any contaminated food or beverage.

So these eggs can be safely consumed if properly cooked, as the Salmonella enteritidis bacteria is killed by cooking.

In fact, SFA advised “customers who have purchased the affected eggs” to “cook them thoroughly before consumption”.

It is important to point out that washing the affected egg has no effect, as the Salmonella enteritidis bacteria is inside the shell.

This is because Salmonella enteritidis infects the ovaries of hens, and contaminate their eggs before their shells are formed.

Only proper cooking can ensure safe consumption. So either cook these properly, or return them.

LINE Releases egg – a free Selfie App

Kuala Lumpur, 26 May 2016 LINE Corporation has announced the release of “egg”, a free selfie app for iOS and Android devices that allows users to customise their photos and videos.

 

Selfie App “egg”

egg is a selfie app that gives users a greater degree of freedom to fulfil their creative purpose by providing features such as 3D Masks which perfectly fit on faces to transform subjects into extraordinary characters much like prosthetic makeup, and animated filters which are triggered by subjects through an eye blink or other actions that the app accurately detects.

The rapid growth of social networks and the selfie trend in recent years has led to an explosion of easy-to-use camera apps with customisation features such as filters and special effects that are being used to take selfies for users’ Instagram and Facebook pages. However, unlike other selfie apps, egg not only lets users take selfies, but also play with their selfies in real time.

The app offers 3D Masks in more than 50 categories (such as “Cute animals”, “Beauty”, “Funny” and “Horror”), and even a mask of the latest LINE character, Choco. Combined with various action-triggered filters such as making hearts appear by blinking, or blowing fire by opening one’s mouth, users can enjoy endless customisation possibilities.

Additionally, users can create their own original masks using photos saved on their smartphones, or even swap faces in real-time with their friends on screen. Besides providing the traditional features of a selfie app — uploading selfie photos and videos to social media — egg proposes a new style of real-time communication with family, friends, and partners through selfies.

In future updates, egg is planning to introduce 3D Masks of popular movie characters, new animated filters, and other entertaining features to bring customers even closer together.

Also added to the collection is a filter featuring Batman from the latest movie “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which was opened in theatres worldwide between March and April of 2016. Additional character-based filters such as that of Wonder Woman are scheduled to be introduced in future updates.
