High-5 bread's factory is really terrible. Pls don't buy in future.Here are two of the pictures.
In summary, the High-5 bread sold here is manufactured in Malaysia.
The local news reported that the factory was recently raided by some Health
Dept officers from the Government sector of Malaysia.
They found the entire premises to be dirty, stench odor and unhealthy
environment; even the bread-making process to be unacceptable by the Health
Dept - no gloves, dirty utensils, etc. See pictures attached!
You can view all the pictures on maverickchen's High-5 Factory photoset.
Thank god, I eat Gardenia. With all the publicity surrounding these photos, I'm sure many people will choose not to eat High-5 Bread anymore. Look at the factory. Crikey! Who would want to eat anything coming out from there?
But today, David Tan, Deputy Head from the Food Control Division of the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) in Singapore told me that High-5 Bread available here is safe to eat. He said, "The Hi 5 bread available for sale in Singapore is manufactured at Shah Alam, Selangor and is not from the implicated bakery in Nilai, Negri Sembilan which was reported in the Malaysian Press." He added that the bread has been tested and AVA assures everyone that the bread is safe for consumption.
There you have it. Assurance from the government but I bet the damage has already been done and consumers will have second thoughts when they see a High-5 bread on the shelves of the supermarket.
