KUALA LUMPUR (AP) - A bakery was to be charged for producing loaves of bread that were heavier and more expensive than permitted under Malaysian law, a news report said Thursday.


Consumer Affairs Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said that Gardenia Bakeries in Selangor state has been ordered to stop producing and distributing its standard loaf because its weight exceeded government requirements by 20 grams (0.7 ounces), The Star newspaper said.


He said the company, which began distributing the bread earlier this month, also hiked the price by an additional 20 sen (5 cents).


Muhyiddin said the ministry would take action against the company under the Supplies Control Act because bread prices cannot be raised arbitrarily, the Star and the national news agency Bernama reported.


It was not immediately clear what the penalties were for producing bigger bread.


The bread manufacturer could not be reached for comment.
