KOTA KINABALU: The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has ordered a recall of instant bak kut teh products imported from an unapproved source in Malaysia, Channel News Asia reported. 

The two products – dry and soup versions of Samy Instant Cooking Bak Kut Teh with Rice – contain more than 5 per cent pork, the agency said in a media release on Friday.

"Meat and meat products that contain more than 5 per cent of meat can only be imported from accredited sources," said the report, Friday.

As a precautionary measure, SFA directed the importers, Biscotti Trading and Boughtnex, to recall the implicated products – Samy Instant Cooking Bak Kut Teh with Rice (Dry) 350g and Samy Instant Cooking Bak Kut Teh with Rice (Soup) 450g.

SFA cautioned that illegally imported food products from unknown and unapproved sources can pose a food safety risk to consumers.
