SINGAPORE - Lifestyle brand Muji Singapore has voluntarily recalled its mini dorayaki red bean jam pancake as mould was found in some of the product's packages.

The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) said in a statement on Friday evening (Sept 14) that the recall has been completed.

The product in question has a weight of 135g and expiry dates between Sept 12 and Dec 5.

The AVA advised consumers who have purchased the product not to consume it.

In response to queries from The Straits Times, Muji said on Monday (Sept 17) that it has not received any complaints or reported health issues from consuming the product.

A spokesman said that Muji was investigating the cause of the mould, and had adopted a "safety first" approach in recalling the product.

The spokesman added that the brand had imported 600 packets of mini dorayaki, of which 292 unsold packets were recalled.

The products were imported from Japan and were sold for $4.30 per packet.

Consumers can take the product to a Muji outlet, or contact Muji Customer Service on 6346-4123 or for a refund.

The Straits Times reported in July that Muji recalled another product, Shrimp and Potherb Peperoncino Pasta Sauce, from its outlets after small plastic pieces were found in some of them.

The affected products were sold from April 9 to June 26 this year.
