The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has announced that it received an international notification regarding the possibility that Spring Home pastries originating in Singapore contain milk or traces of milk, which is not mentioned on the labels of these products.
In a statement on Thursday, the ministry said it contacted the importer and requested for the withdrawal of the following products from the market:
Spring Home TYJ Spring Roll Pastry, best before 8/2/2023; Spring Home Samosa Pastry, best before 8/2/2023; and Spring Home Chicken Spring Roll, best before 8/2/2023.
The MoPH has asked the importer to label the products indicating the milk content in them or its effects. Necessary measures have been taken to ensure that the products are not displayed in the market in a manner that does not conform to the relevant requirements, it added.
Further, the ministry has called upon people who are allergic to milk - and have purchased these products - not to consume them. In case such persons have already consumed any of these items and are showing negative symptoms related to their allergy, they are advised to visit the nearest health centre.
The MoPH, as the authority responsible for checking imported food, continuously communicates with international organisations and entities concerned with food safety, receives periodic notifications and follows up on new reports related to food safety and quality, the notification adds.
