H&H Tiramisu Twist Cookies recalled over presence of undeclared allergens
Allergens like eggs, hazelnuts and almonds were not declared on the English food packaging label, said SFA.
A recall for H&H Tiramisu Twist Cookies was announced on Wednesday (Nov 2) by the Singapore Food Agency.
In its press release, SFA said that the imported cookies contained allergens like eggs, hazelnuts and almonds, which were not declared on the English food packaging label.
SFA was informed by Daiso Singapore about the undeclared allergens. As a precautionary measure, the agency directed Daiso to recall the Tiramisu Twist cookies with expiry dates of June, July and October 2023.
Daiso had voluntarily recalled the implicated products earlier on.
According to the Singapore Food Regulations, food and ingredients that are known to cause hypersensitivity must be declared on the food packaging label.
“Allergens in food can result in allergic reactions for individuals who are sensitive to it,” said SFA.
Consumers who are allergic to eggs, hazelnuts and almonds and have already purchased the affected product are urged not to consume it.
Those who have consumed H&H’s Tiramisu Twist Cookies and feel unwell should seek medical attention, SFA added.
