SINGAPORE: A range of products produced by local manufacturer Tee Yih Jia Food Manufacturing has been recalled because of the potential presence of an undeclared allergen, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) said on Tuesday (Feb 11).
The affected products are: Spring Home TYJ Spring Roll Pastry products, Spring Home TYJ Samosa Pastry and Spring Home Chicken Spring Roll.
The recall is a precautionary measure, said SFA.
It was initiated after Tee Yih Jia Food Manufacturing received feedback from a United Kingdom importer of the presence of a milk allergen that was not declared on the product labels.
Tee Yih Jia Food Manufacturing is currently testing its products to confirm the allergen's presence.
"As a precautionary measure and as the products are available for sale in Singapore, SFA has directed the manufacturer to recall the products," said the agency. The recall is ongoing.
Those who are allergic to milk should not consume the affected products, said the agency.
Consumers can contact Tee Yih Jia Food Manufacturing for exchanges or refunds.
"NO QUALITY ISSUES"
In an update on Wednesday, Tee Yih Jia said it would re-label the recalled products to include allergy advice "for allergens including cereals containing gluten and milk".
This is due to the presence of milk not mentioned on the labels.
"These products may present a possible health and/or dietary issue for those with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents," said the manufacturer.
"We wish to assure all our customers that there are no quality issues with the products. There is no contamination and the products are safe to consume except for those who are allergic to milk."
