Singapore Recalls Canned Broth From Thailand

January 16, 2009

The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AFVS) has announced a recall of New Moon Brand Premium Abalone Broth (Concentrated), imported from Thailand by Goh Joo Hin Pte Ltd.

Singapore took this action after receiving information that the product had a "bad smell" on opening. AFVS is investigating the cause of the problem.

The agency warns that the public should avoid consuming the following product:
  • New Moon brand Premium Abalone Broth (Concentrated), 400-gram can
  • Product of Thailand
  • Identification codes: SPF PRO: 10/10/2008, ABB EXP: 09/10/2011
There are several possible explanations for off-smell in a canned product, including the use of spoiled or substandard ingredients, inadequate heat-processing, and leaky can seams. Any of these conditions may result in food that is hazardous to health.
