The Municipal Affairs Bureau (IAM) recently noticed a statement from the Hong Kong Centre for Food Safety warning that a soya milk product batch may have quality issues, and its manufacturer in Hong Kong is recalling the particular batch, the bureau said in a statement yesterday.
The brand is VITASOY CALCI-PLUS, and the product is named Hi-Calcium Original Soya Milk, the statement noted.
The batch with the apparent quality issue is TE 20, 250 ml per pack, with a best before date of February 19 next year, the statement said.
According to the statement, the bureau is following the case closely, and has contacted its Hong Kong counterpart as well as the brand’s Macau branch for the latest information.
At the same time, the bureau has issued a food warning to the local F&B industry, and sent officials to supermarkets and shops for further investigation.
The bureau urged retailers to stop selling this batch of product and citizens to stop consuming it.
The statement pointed out that retailers sold the product should inform the bureau that they have this particular batch in stock, in order to protect consumers’ food safety.
For enquires, call the IAM food safety hotline on 2833 8181 or VITASOY Macau Branch on 2857 2133 during office hours.
