Restaurant chain Secret Recipe’s halal certificate has been revoked due to sanitary issues. According to a post on Secret Recipe's Facebook page, this came in in the midst of its expansion plans.
The management of Secret Recipe told customers on social media that all its "ingredients and preparation of products and food are in accordance to the Halal Certification Standards of Malaysia," and that the certificate was revoked due to its renovation and upgrading works.
Still, news of the halal certificate being revoked sparked heated conversations on social media, particularly on Secret Recipe's Facebook page.
A quick check by A+M showed that consumers were unhappy with the restaurant's lack of transparency, since it did not immediately update its customers when the halal certification was first revoked.
