Recall of Kitchen Joy Crispy Battered Shrimp Due To False Claims On Packaging (SFA)

The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has detected gluten in Kitchen Joy Crispy Battered Shrimp, despite claims on the product packaging indicating that the product was gluten-free.

As a precautionary measure, SFA has directed the importer, CP Foods Singapore Pte Ltd, to recall the affected batches of the implicated product. The recall is ongoing.

Under Singapore’s Food Regulations, the use of false or misleading claims on prepacked food products which do not reflect the true nature of their contents is prohibited.

Gluten is a type of protein naturally found in wheat and other grains.

Gluten does not pose a food safety issue to consumers at large, except for those who are intolerant of or allergic to gluten. Consumers who have purchased the implicated products, and who are intolerant of or allergic to gluten, should not consume them.

Those who are intolerant of or allergic to gluten and have consumed the implicated products should seek medical advice if they have concerns about their health. Consumers may contact their point of purchase for enquiries.
