Please advice according to Malaysian law and regulations: If a product is ‘made in Italy’ or ‘made in Hungary’, but the product is termed as ‘made in EU’ (for European Union), would it be considered as valid?

Product labeling is governed by the Consumer Protection Act 1999 and it will be an offence to misrepresent.
The act requires that consumers be fairly and accurately informed of the country of origin of the imported goods into Malaysia and this is to be stated on the product label. Because EU is a community having member states that are independent and autonomous, it will not be possible to make something in Romania and label it as EU MADE. You can however label it as EU compliant in standards like CE.
Therefore, the Country of Manufacture must be stated on the product under the Malaysia Law.
