SFA recalls Blue Frog cereal due to presence of undeclared gluten allergen

The Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) issued a recall of Blue Frog Zesty Raspberry with Coconut & Toasted Almonds Gluten-Free Cereal and Blue Frog Apricot with Vanilla & Hemp Heart Gluten-Free Cereal due to the presence of an undeclared gluten allergen.

The food products have been recalled by Bio Living International Pte Ltd.

Since the implicated products were imported into Singapore, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has directed the importer, Home & Health Distributors Pte Ltd, to recall the products.

The recall is ongoing.

SFA said in a media release on Monday (Nov 2) that the presence of undeclared allergen, such as gluten, in food could result in an allergic reaction in individuals who are hypersensitive to gluten.

"Under the Sale of Food Act (Food Regulations), sale of cereals containing gluten must be clearly labelled to safeguard public health," added SFA.

Consumers who have purchased the implicated products, and who are allergic to gluten, should not consume them.

The presence of gluten allergen does not pose a food safety issue to consumers at large, except for those who are allergic to gluten.

Those who are allergic to gluten and have consumed the implicated products should seek medical advice if they have concerns about their health.

Consumers may contact the importer at 9160 9443 for enquiries and for exchange or refund of products.

Details of the products are as follows:
