The food additive, dehydroacetic acid, was detected in Xiang Piao Piao Muscovado Sugar Mix (Bubble & Red Bean) Milk Tea and Matcha Mix (Bubble & Raisin) Milk Tea.
“Dehydroacetic acid is not a permitted food additive under the Singapore Food Regulations,” said the agency on Saturday (Dec 17).
“The food safety risk associated with the consumption of the implicated products is low,” it added.
“Nonetheless, consumers who have purchased the implicated products and have concerns about their health should not consume it.”
Both products are from China. The affected batches are:
