The Prophet (peace be upon Him) has given a guideline concerning Syubhah matters. It is reported by Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Daud, Ibn Majah and Darimi, as follow:

Which means:
What is Halal is clear. And what is Haram is also clear. And in between those two is a dubious area in which many people do not know about. So whoever distanced himself from it, he has acquitted himself (from blame). And those who fall into it, he has fallen into a state of Haram.
Recognizing Malaysia Halal Logo

  • Eight-pointed star is placed in the middle of the circle
  • A word-Halal in Arabic – “” is placed in the middle of the star
  • It is then followed a “HALAL” word in Roman
  • The circle of the logo contains, the word "Malaysia" in Roman and Arabic
  • Two small five-pointed stars are placed to separate the Roman and Arabic word. (Source: JAKIM)

~ So be careful when you buy something that you eat. Even though Halal logo is there, but make sure it is from JAKIM & MAIS. Clean, not syubhah and healthy. You are what you eat.
