A Malaysian woman’s erroneous claim that McCormick’s Cajun Seasoning is made with pork meat recently went viral on social media.
The woman attempted to warn other Malaysians in the one-minute Tiktok video to carefully read the labels when purchasing spices at any grocery store.
She then takes a bottle of McCormick’s Cajun Seasoning to show that it contains pork and is thus unsafe for Muslims to use.
“If you look at this cajun seasoning, the ingredients contain pork,” said the woman in the video.
The woman, however, didn’t realise that she had misread the labels until the end of the video.
Instead of reading the ingredients on the label, she was reading the ‘use on’ suggestions.
The woman in the video continues to demonstrate incorrectly that McCormick’s Season All Seasoned Salt contains pork.
“Another one that I found is this Season All spice. It’s also made out of pork,” she said.
The woman adds that she is looking for spices to marinate her chicken at the grocery store, but thankfully she reads the spice bottles’ “ingredients” first.
She goes on to say that all McCormick spices with orange font on the label are made from pork meat.
“These seasonings [made with pork meat] are written in orange font. However, their herbs are safe “She stated.
The concerned shopper also attached Shopee reviews of stores selling these seasonings, claiming that many Muslims had purchased them in error.
Her Tiktok has since been deleted and was reposted by TikTok viral on Instagram.
Sardonic comments poured in from social media users.
One joked that the only English word the woman knew was ‘pork’, while others lamented the importance of mastering the language.
We heavily recommend that people read labels slowly and more attentively to avoid such allegations from happening.
