Posted by Smookiekins On 5/22/2012 11:55:00 AM
14 food items will be placed under the Price Control Scheme for a week beginning May 25 in Sabah and Labuan for the Kaamatan or Harvest Festival.

 Food items included under Price Control Scheme


Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said that during the period, traders would be required to display pink price tags for the affected food items and to not sell them above the ceiling price.

The price control scheme would be enforced in 25 districts in Sabah and Labuan, he told reporters after launching the state-level Consumers Squad in Penampang near here today.
 
The food items include live chicken (RM6.60 per kg), standard chicken (RM9.60 per kg), chicken wings (RM9.50 to RM10.50 per kg), Grade A chicken egg (40 sen each) and local beef (RM18 per kg).

  1. semasa musim perayaan pasti ramai peniaga akan ambil kesempatan menaikkan harga makanan, oleh itu ia perlu dikawal.

    1. Pengguna perlu mengetahui hak mereka bila mendapati ada peniaga menaikkan harga.

  2. Fortunately the government will be controlling the price for these 14 items so that the businessmen would not be able to raise the price during the Kaamatan Festivals.

  3. The businessmen who tries to sell these controlled items above ceiling prices should be reported to the authorities. Consumers should know their rights and not succumb to irresponsible businessmen.

  7. orang awam atau pengguna perlu berani membuat aduan jika ada mana2 peniaga yang sengaja menaikkan harga barang kawalan samada ketika waktu perayaan mahupun selepas perayaan..
