The Centre for Food Safety (CFS) of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department today (September 15) urged the public not to consume a kind of prepackaged pancake imported from Japan as there might be mould found in the package of the product.
Product details are as follows:
Product name: Mini Dorayaki – Red Bean Jam Pancake
Country of Origin: Japan
Packing: 135 grams per pack

A spokesman for the CFS said, "The CFS, through its routine Food Incident Surveillance System, noted an announcement by the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore that Muji (Singapore) is recalling the above-mentioned batch of pancake due to the possible presence of mould in the package of the product."
The spokesman said that upon learning of the incident, the CFS immediately followed up with Muji (Hong Kong) Company Limited. According to information provided by the company, it had imported the affected product which was put on sale at its outlets. The company has already removed from shelves and stopped sale of the affected product earlier, and initiated a recall. Members of the public may call the company's hotline at 2694 9309 during office hours for enquiries about the recall.
The CFS will continue to follow up on the incident and take appropriate action.
