Food allergies pose serious health risks, potentially leading to severe consequences or even death for some individuals. It’s disheartening to know that despite a person’s efforts to check product labels and ensure that they’re safe to consume before making a purchase, they might still be at risk because of the manufacturer’s negligence.

Because eggs are allergens and the affected products were shipped to Singapore, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has directed the importer, CJ SE Asia Pte Ltd, to recall them all— the process is ongoing.

Fortunately, Singapore’s Food Regulations mandate clear labelling of ingredients known to cause hypersensitivity on food packaging. This measure is crucial for safeguarding consumers against food allergies. Additionally, food labels aid customers in identifying specific food products in the event of a food safety incident.
