KUALA LUMPUR: Cadbury Confectionery Malaysia Sdn Bhd has taken immediate action by recalling its two products which were tested positive for traces of pig DNA (porcine).

Its head of corporate affairs, Raja Zalina Raja Safran, said they were informed that only Cadbury Dairy Milk Hazelnut (with batch number 200813M01H I2 that expires on Nov 13, 2014) and Cadbury Dairy Milk Roast Almond (with batch number 221013N01R I1 that expires on Jan 15, 2015) analysed by the Health Ministry were tested positive for traces of porcine.
