SINGAPORE: The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) on Friday (Jul 1) ordered the recall of Goods banana cake after it found excess levels of a preservative in the product.
The agency said it detected the presence of sorbic acid in the cake, at levels exceeding the maximum limit for the compound as stated in the Singapore Food Regulations.
The recall is a precautionary measure and is ongoing, said SFA in a media statement.
The cake, imported by Goods Huat Hee Marketing, has a use-by date of Aug 30, 2022. The product's country of origin is Malaysia.
"Sorbic acid is a permitted food additive that is used for preservation purposes," said the agency, adding that consumption of the affected product is unlikely to pose any adverse health effects due to its low toxicity.
Those who have consumed the implicated product and have concerns about their health should seek medical advice. Consumers may also contact their point of purchase for enquiries.
