Danone Dumex has recalled more milk formula products in Singapore as a precautionary measure to ensure consumer safety.

The updated list now includes:

* Dupro Step 2 Follow-Up Formula 800g, for babies older than six months. One of the two batches affected is FGDFORG0800TNSG43 06043R1, which expires on June 4, 2015. The other batch is FGDFORG0800TNSG43 04253R1, which expires on April 25, 2015.

* Dulac Step 1 Infant Formula 800g, for babies under six months. The affected batch is FGDIFRG0800TNSG43 04253R1, which expires on April 25, 2015.

The firm said they do not contain the potentially-contaminated whey product manufactured by New Zealand's Fonterra.

But they were packed on a production line that may have had residue of the potentially-contaminated raw material.

Danone Dumex stressed that none of its products tested to date and sold in Singapore indicates any contamination.
