SFA recalls Bibik's Choice chicken patties containing undeclared egg allergen

The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has directed importer Sin Li-Hin Frozen Food to recall a batch of Bibik's Choice Pepper Chicken patties after egg was detected in the product.

Egg, which is an allergen, was not declared on the food packaging label, SFA said in a statement on Friday (Sept 22).

The affected batch's expiry date is Feb 22, 2025.

"Allergen in food could result in allergic reaction in individuals who are sensitive to it," said SFA.

Under the Singapore Food Regulations, food products containing ingredients that are known to cause hypersensitivity must be declared on food packaging labels to protect consumers with food allergies.

All ingredients in prepacked food should also be specified on the product label in descending order of the proportions by weight in which they are present.

SFA added that egg does not pose a food safety issue to consumers at large, except for those who are intolerant of or are allergic to egg.

Consumers who have purchased the affected product, and who are intolerant of or allergic to eggs, should not consume it.

Those who are intolerant of or allergic to eggs and have consumed the implicated product should seek medical advice if they have concerns about their health.

Consumers may contact their point of purchase for enquiries.
