SINGAPORE (The Straits Times/Asia News Network): Some bottles of carbonara mushroom sauce from the Prego brand have been recalled due to a manufacturing error after signs of spoilage were detected.
On Thursday (Dec 22), the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) said that the affected bottles were produced on Aug 17, 2022. Their expiry date of Aug 17, 2023 and a production time stamp of between 10:18pm and 11:20pm can be found on top of the product, which is imported by Campbell Soup South-East Asia Sdn Bhd.
SFA said: “The affected batch may exhibit signs of spoilage which include unpleasant smell, unusual colour, watery appearance and separated layers of liquid.”
It has directed Campbell Soup South-East Asia to recall the product and told consumers not to consume any bottles which are affected.
Under the Sale of Food Act, foods that are known to be unsuitable for consumption should not be sold.
Those who have consumed such products and are unwell should seek medical attention.
“Consumers may contact their point of purchase for enquiries,” SFA said.
