Milo Malaysia has uploaded an image to help its customers differentiate between the original and fake product.

The image uploaded on its official Facebook page was also shared on Nestle’s Facebook page.

“The original Milo packaging is machine packed and cut. As such the edges on the top of the original pack will not have a perfect perforation," it said.

Based on a report by Sinar Harian, Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry on Friday seized RM250,000 worth of fake Milo products at an elite residential area in Mantin, Negeri Sembilan.

State chief enforcer Saifulbahri Abdul Kadir said this was done after receiving many complaints from members of the public.

“From the operation, we found 225 packets which contained fake Milo stored in a room.

“We believe that the fake Milo is ready to be distributed in the state and nearby areas,” he said.
