PHOTO OF `PASAR FRESH PORK (AIR FLOWN)' PACKAGING BEARING MUIS HALAL CERTIFICATION MARK
Thank you for forwarding your feedback to Muis.
2 The `Pasar Fresh Pork (Air Flown)', packed for NTUC Fairprice Co-operative Ltd, 680 Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 787103, is not Halal-certified by Muis. Our investigations at eight NTUC outlets on 31 October 2007, immediately upon receipt of this feedback, revealed that the said product did not bear the Muis Halal certification mark.
3 Please be informed that the police is currently looking into this matter. It was reported by Channelnewsasia on 1 November 2007 that the NTUC Fairprice had filed a police report over what it claimed as an act of mischief to tamper with the packaging of the pork product.
4 Thank you.

|E-mail on FairPrice Pasar Fresh Pork carrying halal sticker is a hoax|
|I AM writing with regards to an e-mail hoax from 2007, which is continuing to circulate on the Internet even today.|
|13 March 2009|
I AM writing with regards to an e-mail hoax from 2007, which is continuing to circulate on the Internet even today.
The contents of this e-mail is a doctored image depicting one of our housebrand products, FairPrice Pasar Fresh Pork, with a halal certification mark attached to the packaging.
We are mindful of the serious religious implications of this matter and regard this as a wilful act of mischief.
Since being alerted to the mass circulation of this e-mail in 2007, NTUC FairPrice has lodged a report with the Singapore Police.
As this e-mail continues to circulate, we would like to appeal that you alert the public to the falsity of this e-mail and in doing so, assure the public that the original packaging of Pasar Fresh Pork does not carry the halal sticker from the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS).
As with all nutritional and product information for food items, we take great care in ensuring that the information printed on the packaging of our housebrand products is accurate and certified.
As a social enterprise and one of the largest retailers in Singapore, NTUC FairPrice is a household name that caters to the varying needs of the local community.
