The Singapore authorities who are in charge of making sure that Singaporeans get safe and clean food have been busy.
Within the span of two weeks, they managed to detect three different batches of food that are unsafe for Singaporeans’ consumption.
This time, it’s the Singapore Food Authority (SFA) who are warning people in Singapore against consuming 10 products that can be found in supermarkets.
Winter Melon Products
According to the SFA, they are recalling 10 winter melon products that are sold in supermarkets.
After testing, they found that the sulphur dioxide within these products exceeds the maximum limit stated in the Singapore Food Regulations.
For people who are allergic to sulphite, excessive sulphite in food could cause symptoms like hives, itchiness, diarrhoea, stomachache and even vomiting.
In fact, according to WebMD, sulphite allergic reactions in people with asthma may even prove fatal.
Anyone who has bought the products should not consume them, the SFA advises.
Instead, contact the importers for enquiries and exchange/refunds:
- Yuan Sang (Tel: 6779 6677)
- Bake With Yen (Tel: 67413957)
- Ah Pau Choy (Tel: 62960730)
- Z T P Ginseng Birdnest (Tel: 6316 1215)
- Sun Kee (Tel: 64170888)
- Kuo Yeong (Tel: 6773 7677)
- H W Agri-Food Trading (Tel: 64826006 or 64823212)
And if you feel unwell after consuming it, go see a doctor immediately.
