A video circulating on social media showing men scooping and packaging "fake Milo" is from a past incident in Malaysia, Nestlé Singapore said in a statement to Stomp.

They added that consumers have no reason to worry about it.

Several Stompers alerted to the circulated video that came with the following message:

In the video, men form a production line of sorts where one scoops what looks like Milo powder into the brand's signature green packaging, while another seals the bags and places the finished product in a plastic tub.

In response to a Stomp media query, a Nestlé spokesman said that the video is from an old incident in Malaysia.

"This is an old post that has resurfaced and there is no cause for concern," he said.

"This was an incident in Malaysia which was reported a few years ago.

"Our counterparts in Malaysia had provided full cooperation to the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism which had taken the necessary action against the perpetrators, and the matter was resolved. 

"We would like to assure consumers that Nestlé is committed to providing the best quality products.

"The safety and quality of our products are non-negotiable priorities for the company, and we take all necessary steps to protect the public from unscrupulous illegal operators who engage in manufacturing, distributing and/or selling counterfeit Nestlé products.

"Consumers who have any enquiries with regards to this matter are advised to contact the Nestlé Consumer Services Centre at 800-6011-633."
