No insect repellent found in Nissin, Myojo cup noodles in Singapore

Channel NewsAsia - Monday, October 27 SINGAPORE: Singapore’s Agri—Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) says its laboratory tests have found no traces of the chemical paradichlorobenzene in the Nissin and Myojo cup noodles here.

The chemical is used as an insect repellent.

On Friday, Japan’s Nissin Food Products Co. recalled half a million cups of instant noodles over fears of contamination after a 67—year—old Japanese woman vomited and felt numbness on her tongue after eating the noodles.

In the latest food scare, Japan’s second largest meat processor Itoham Foods Inc. on Sunday began recalling more than two million packs of sausage and pizza products possibly containing toxic chemicals.

AVA has confirmed Singapore does not import food that contains meat products from Japan.
