SINGAPORE - Pakary Haw Balls have been recalled after a plastic chip was found in one of the bottles, the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) said on Thursday (July 14).

AVA said a member of the public alerted the agency to a "small plastic chip" found in a 80g bottle of Pakary Haw Ball.

"To ensure food safety, AVA has been working with the importer to investigate the matter," it said.

While investigations are ongoing, the importer has been voluntarily recalling the affected batch as a precautionary measure since Wednesday.

Consumers who have purchased the implicated product are advised not to consume it, AVA said.

The batch affected has an expiry date of Sept 30, 2017.
