KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 14 items will be placed under the festive season price control scheme from Oct 21 to Oct 30 for Deepavali.
The items announced by Domestic Trade, Co-operatives andConsumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob included live chicken, standard chicken, super chicken, local bone-in mutton, imported bone-in mutton, imported bone-in mutton leg and imported boneless mutton.
Grade A, B and C chicken eggs, tomatoes, shallots (India), imported potatoes (China) and dhal (lentils) from Australia were also in the list. 
“All traders must not sell these items above their maximum price.
“They must put a pink price tag on these items to differentiate them from others,” he said during a press conference at the Parliament lobby.
“Under the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011, individuals found to be selling the price-controlled items at a higher price, can be fined up to RM100,000 or jailed up to three years, or both, or face a compound of up to RM50,000.
“Individuals who do not display the pink tag can be fined up to RM10,000 or face a compound of up to RM5,000,” he said.
Enforcement personnel and price surveying officers would be stationed at popular shopping hotspots like morning and public markets to monitor the price.
Meanwhile, Ismail said the ministry's move to issue 127 showcause notices between Oct 8 and Oct 14 to chicken traders, wholesalers and breeders had led to lower prices.
On the possibility of Thailand importing chicken from Malaysia which may cause a price hike, Ismail said he would discuss the matter with the Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Ministry.
