Dutch Lady Investigates Milk Batch

PETALING JAYA, 13 February 2018 – Dutch Lady Malaysia confirms that it is currently investigating a case involving its Dutch Lady Curious (900g) product with the specific batch no. 1023C7WA.

The investigation was initiated in response to a health complaint lodged by a consumer and the incident has since triggered a widespread discussion and speculation on social media.
