KUALA LUMPUR: The Ashley HauYi placenta capsule being advertised on Facebook is not registered with the Health Ministry.
Heath Director-General Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said the public are encouraged not to take the product as its safety is not guaranteed.
“The ministry has received complaints on the sale of the placenta capsule in Facebook.
“The Pharmacy Enforcement Division and its branches in every state have begun monitoring websites including social media that are actively selling and advertising the pharmaceutical product illegally since 2013.
“The ministry will take appropriate action against the culprits,” he said in a statement here today.
