No import of pig DNA-tainted Cadbury chocolates in S'pore: AVA

Singapore did not import the two batches of Cadbury chocolates that are said to contain porcine or pig DNA, said the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA).

SINGAPORE: Singapore did not import the two batches of Cadbury chocolates that are said to contain porcine or pig DNA, said the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA).

AVA's statement on Monday came after Cadbury Malaysia recalled two batches of chocolates found tainted with porcine DNA.

AVA said it will be checking similar products under the Cadbury brand available in Singapore to "ensure the ingredients used in the manufacturing of the products are truly as declared under the statement of ingredients".

Cadbury Malaysia had issued a statement on its website, saying it took the issue very seriously.

It said it is withdrawing immediately all impacted Cadbury Dairy Milk Hazelnut with batch number 200813M01H I2 that expires on November 13, 2014, and Cadbury Dairy Milk Roast Almond with batch number 221013N01R I1 that expires on January 15, 2015.
