SINGAPORE: Muji Singapore has recalled a batch of its Shrimp & Potherb Peperoncino pasta sauce after several small plastic pieces were found in some packages.

In a notice on its website on Sunday (Jul 29), the Japanese retail company said affected customers can bring the product to any Muji outlet or contact its customer service to arrange for a refund.

Those who have bought the pasta sauce are also advised to not consume it.

The affected product carries a Japan Article Number (JAN) Code of 4550002183004, with an expiry date of Feb 3, 2019.

"Customers should not be concerned with the same item with otherwise stated expiry date," said Muji Singapore in a press release on Wednesday. 

It added that the affected items were removed from all stores on Jun 28, the day that it received an email notification from Muji Japan about the matter.

Unsold packets of the sauce have been sent back to Japan for further investigations, said Muji Singapore.
