According to the Taiwan news, this additive is used extensively in colourings, thickeners, flavourings in confectionery, ice cream, beverages. Many pdts are taken down from shelves. A main supplier with this tainted additive has been identified.

Woah! Looks like it's really not safe to travel to Taiwan during this period then?... Unless we take great precaution on the food we eat... But then again, what's the point of going Taiwan when most of the food cannot be eaten, especially those at the night markets or push carts taste most delicious.
