i did bought a few big bottle for my stock keeping. the taste is nice. but how now should i return the rest of the big bottle to guardian and get my money back?

Hi there, according to the press released, malaysia MOH has confirmed that the batch affected has a batch number of F1104001. If the batch that you have bought is not of the above batch number, it should be safe to be consumed. If the batch you bought is the same batch number as above, maybe you can bring the remaining bottles and receipt back to Guardian pharmacy to ask for re-fund. I'm not sure is it possible but you may ask.

may i ask u mindy,where did u read that only that particular batch is affected and others are safe to be consumed? im a bit worried bcus when i googled it all other websites said the ministry bans it n its unsafe to be consumed.

Mindy said...

So sorry for the late reply, didn't realize there are a few questions.

To mei mei and anonymous, personally I haven't tried lennox collagen drink and NH colla plus before, but some of my friends who took these do have better skin complexion. I'll say lennox is a more economical choice for collagen drink, but I understand the ban on it previously might give public the insecure feeling, including myself.

I read from ministry of health official web that only that particular batch affected, the link is included in my blog entry.

Research is required to be done before selecting the best collagen drink in the market. Read the testimonials and do verify the authenticity of those testimonials.

I baru saja ambil Lennox FirmUp Collagen Drink dan agak terkejut bila terbaca artikel pasal Lennox FirmUp Collagen Drink yg telah tercemar dengan DEHP. OMG!! I terus call KKM, so xperlu risau lagi, hanya 1 shj yg tercemar iaitu Lennox Firm-Up Collagen Drink dari nombor batch F1104001. produk keluaran seterusnya dijamin tidak mengandungi DEHP
