Hi Friends,

Here are some items that have been recalled in Singapore due to theChina Milk scandal. If you have a look at the list some of these items are also sold in Papua New Guinea.

For your information, the following items have been recalled due to China's milk scandal :

7. Wall's all natural mango

8. Mini Poppers Ice Cream

9. Magnum Ice Cream

10. Moo Sandwich Ice Cream

11. Mini Cornetto

12. Youcan Ice Cream

Stores have been asked by AVA Singapore to remove them. If you have any of these items at home, don't eat them.

Singapore's Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) has said that its laboratory tests have shown that the ‘White Rabbit Creamy Candy’ from China is also contaminated with melamine.

Consumers who have bought the affected products are advised not to consume them, the AVA said in a statement.

The latest test results bring the total number of milk and related products from China imported into Singapore that are found to be contaminated with melamine to three.

The other two affected products are ‘Yili Brand’ Choice Dairy Fruit Bar

Yogurt Flavoured Ice Confection" and ‘Dutch Lady’ brand of strawberry flavoured milk.

All the affected products have been recalled earlier.

Since Sept 19, 2008, AVA has suspended the import and sale of all milk and milk products from China.

These products include milk, ice-cream, yoghurt, confectionery such as chocolates, biscuits and sweets as well as any other products containing milk from China as an ingredient.

Retailers and importers have also been instructed to recall these

products and withhold them from sale.

AVA will not hesitate to prosecute any retailer or importer who fail to

remove these products from their shelves. Under the Sale of Food Act, anyone found selling unwholesome food can be fined up to $10,000 and/or sentenced to three months jail, or both.

As a precaution, consumers are also advised not to consume any milk or

milk products from China.
