INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Chairman of the House of Representatives, Bambang Soesatyo encourage the Agency for Drug and Food Control (BPOM) provides a comprehensive explanation related to the findings of condensed milk (SKM) does not contain nutritious milk.

"Every SKM packaging on the market is all labeled from BPOM, so it should provide a comprehensive explanation related to these findings," he said, in Jakarta, Thursday (5/7/2018)

Bambang Soesatyo who is familiarly called Bamsoet, said it refers to the findings of BPOM that SKM does not contain nutritious milk.

BPOM in its findings also that SKM contains high sugar so it can cause diabetes.

Golkar Party politician asserted, for the Ministry of Health and BPOM to review all SKM products and coordinate with the Ministry of Trade (Kemendag).

"If necessary, all SKM is withdrawn from circulation in the market," he said.

"I urge the Police to examine deeply the motives behind the BPOM statement to prove its truth, and take firm action against SKM producers," he said.
