Singapore Food Agency Recalls Contaminated Everest Fish Curry Masala from India

Singapore authorities have issued a recall for Everest Fish Curry Masala imported from India due to the presence of ethylene oxide exceeding permissible levels. The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) directed the importer, Sp Muthiah & Sons Pte. Ltd., to initiate the recall following a notification from the Centre for Food Safety in Hong Kong.

The implicated product, Everest Fish Curry Masala (50g), with a best before date of 09/2025, has been flagged for containing ethylene oxide, a pesticide not authorized for use in food. While ethylene oxide is permitted for sterilizing spices under Singapore's Food Regulations, its elevated presence in food products poses potential health risks.

Consumers who have purchased the affected product are advised not to consume it. Although immediate health risks from low levels of ethylene oxide are minimal, prolonged exposure could lead to health issues. Those who have consumed the product and are concerned about their health should seek medical advice.

The recall serves as a precautionary measure to ensure food safety and minimize health risks associated with contaminated products. Consumers are urged to remain vigilant and stay informed about product recalls to protect their health and well-being.
