Mars chocolate products recalled in Singapore

SINGAPORE: The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) has issued a recall of Mars chocolate products manufactured in the Netherlands as a precautionary measure, it announced in a media release late Wednesday (Feb 24).
This comes a day after Mars issued a voluntary recall for its products in 55 countries, following the discovery of a piece of plastic in a Dutch-made Snickers bar.

AVA said its recall was due to the possibility of products containing pieces of plastic. "The affected products were manufactured between Dec 5, 2015 and Jan 18, 2016. Only products labelled as 'Mars Netherlands' are affected by this recall," it said.

The authority added that it had checked and confirmed that there are imports of Mars chocolate products from the Netherlands in Singapore. As a precaution, it has instructed importers to remove Snickers, Mars, Milky Way and Celebrations chocolates from the market immediately.

Those who have bought these products which have "Mars Netherlands" on the packs are advised not to consume them, AVA stated.

Saw this reply by NTUC FairPrice....please bring the affected Evergreen Manuka Honey which you had bought from Fairprice to get a refund-with or without receipt.

Extract from Fairprice Facebaook:

"AVA has recalled 18 Evergreen Manuka Honey products due to additives. We carry only 2 of these products. If you have purchased Evergreen Manuka Honey MGO30+ 500G or Evergreen Manuka Honey MGO30+ 1KG from us, please bring the product back to any of our stores (with/without receipt) to get a refund. "
