|Source of Information||
The Centre for Food Safety (CFS)
|Product Name and Description||
1. Brand name and food name: Flavor Full Black Sesame Spread
|Reason For Issuing Alert||
Both products have been found to contain plasticizer, di-butyl phthalate (DBP). Although the acute toxicity of DBP is low, chronic large-dose exposure to DBP was found to affect the reproduction and development and cause birth defect in animals.
|Action Taken by the Centre for Food Safety||
The CFS has instructed the importers to immediately stop selling and recall the relevant batches of the products.
The CFS will closely follow up the case, conduct checks at retail outlets and take samples of similar products for testing.
|Advice to the Trade||
Stop selling the concerned products.
|Advice to Consumers||
Stop consuming the concerned products.
