Residents in Selangor have been assured of a sufficient supply of eggs and subsidised cooking oil in the state.
Selangor chief enforcement officer of the domestic trade and cost of living ministry, Mohd Khairi Jamaludin, said any shortage would be temporary and confined to certain localities, with supply restored within a reasonable period.
"Undeniably, there are limits on the purchase of eggs, but the situation is not critical," he said, urging consumers to buy according to their needs instead of panic buying or keeping a surplus of stock.
On the one-kilogramme packages of cooking oil, he said inspections had found that the supply was stable and sufficient to meet the demands of consumers in the state.
"The government's directive to limit customers to three packets per purchase is reasonable to ensure that everybody gets to enjoy subsidised cooking," he said.
Khairi also said that the Selangor enforcement division of the ministry would continue to conduct daily checks on the price and supply of essential items in the market.
