The Centre for Food Safety (CFS) today (June 4) advised people not to consume two types of Isotone Sports Drinks.

The CFS was notified by the company, A. S Watson Group (HK) Limited (Watsons), today that it has suspended the sale of the products due to detection of fungus in them. Details of the products are as follows:

1. Product name: Isotone Sports Drinks (regular flavour)
Pack size: 500 mL

2. Product name: Isotone Sports Drinks (ice flavour)
Pack size: 500 mL

"The CFS has alerted the trade and will work closely with the company to monitor the situation. The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department will also inspect the concerned food factory," a CFS spokesman said.

For more information, please call the Watsons hotline: 2660 6633.

"Fungus is unlikely to pose a health risk to the general public," the spokesman added.

He advised consumers not to drink the above two products and to consult a doctor if they feel sick after drinking the products. The public should also not buy or consume food that is unclean, such as food visibly covered with mould.
