Two Taiwanese Food Products And Korean Noodle Recalled For Tests

If you're a consumer of Taiwanese or Korean food products, please pay attention to this. Recently, Health Ministry has ordered Delitea Sdn Bhd to recall two Taiwanese food products after the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that 'Strawberry Pudding Powder' and 'Strawberry Pudding' - manufactured by Signwin Food Enterprise, Taiwan, were suspected of being contaminated with bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP).

Health Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said that Korean noodles 'Shin Ramen' had also been recalled due to suspicion of having excessive amounts of the cancer-causing plastic addictives di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) and di-isononyl phthalate (DINP).
“We urge consumers to stop eating the noodles which they have bought until the tests by our ministry show that they are free from these contaminants,” Liow said on Saturday.

Exposure to DEHP has produced a range of adverse effects in laboratory animals. Of greatest concern are the effects on the development of the male reproductive system and the production of normal sperm in young animals.

UPDATES (14 JUNE 2011):
