Two bubble milk tea products from Chinese brand Xiang Piao Piao are being recalled, said the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) in a press release on Saturday (Dec 17).
The food additive dehydroacetic acid has been found in Xiang Piao Piao Muscovado Sugar Mix (Bubble & Red Bean) Milk Tea and Matcha Mix (Bubble & Raisin) Milk Tea.
The affected batches are HZ04L18413 20220926 for Muscovado Sugar Mix (Bubble & Red Bean) Milk Tea and HZ04L18414 20220926 for Matcha Mix (Bubble & Raisin) Milk Tea.

Dehydroacetic acid is not a permitted food additive under the Singapore Food regulations.
According to SFA, the food safety risk associated with consumption of the implicated products is low.
