A batch of Singlong Peanut Butter (Crunchy) has been recalled by its importer after a metal screw was found in a bottle of the Chinese product, said the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) on Monday (7 May).

The AVA had worked with the importer to investigate the incident – upon receiving feedback about the metal screw in the 340g bottle – and found that the foreign object could have been introduced during the manufacturing process.

AVA said that the importer had voluntarily recalled the specific batch of the product, to be used by 25 January 2019, as a precautionary measure.

The recall has since been completed, the AVA added. Consumers who have purchased the affected product are advised not to consume it, and may contact Sing Long Foodstuff Trading at 62845254 or email nya01@singlong.com for a refund or an exchange.

This is the second product that has been recalled in the last three days.

On Saturday, the AVA announced that the importer of Frezfrut Natural Goodness Kaya had recalled a batch of the product, following feedback that a “foreign particle” was found in one of its 220g bottles.

The AVA had worked with the importer to investigate the incident, and found that the Malaysian product “may have been contaminated with pest droppings during the manufacturing process”.

As a precautionary measure, the importer has voluntarily recalled the specific batch of the product, said the AVA.

The recall for the affected batch, to be used by 5 February 2020, is ongoing. Consumers who have purchased the affected product are advised to not consume it.
