The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) of Singapore has instructed the importer and retailers of Pere Ocean Mineral Water to recall all 500 mL bottles with an expiry date of 09.12.10 from the retail market.
The action came after AVA detected unspecified foreign matter in the mineral water. Consumers who purchased the recalled water are advised to discard it.
Hong Kong's Centre for Food Safety has alerted retailers in the Territory to the recall and has requested additional information from AVA. NEW Jan 9
