INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Four Australians died after consuming melamine-laced rock melons, a dangerous bacteria that entered the fruit on Wednesday (7/3).

Quoted from the page Channel News Asia, Friday (9/3), the case is now the serious concern of the government of Kangaroos for attacking 17 other citizens. Tan Quarantine Board of Agriculture Banun Harpini ensures melon from Australia is not circulating in Indonesia so that people do not have to worry. Melon which is currently on the market is native and healthier locally.

"We have anticipated, I am limiting and tightening the security of distribution in imported places and imports," said Banun responding to the case of melon contamination in Australia causing death.

Banun ensures that until now there has been no import of melons from Australia and to keep his party tightened up the imported tap.

The case, he said, proves that better people prefer local fruit than imported fruit.

"Essentially we encourage local fruits to eat, because local fruits are also widely exported," he said.

Social media activist Nukman Luthfie in tweets uploaded on his @nukman account even showed short videos of the importance of eating local fruits and preserving them.
