The implicated product is imported by Go Fresh Impex Pte Ltd for sale at NTUC Fairprice and Sheng Siong supermarkets. AVA has directed the importer to recall the implicated product. The recall is ongoing.

AVA advised consumers who have purchased the affected products to contact the
respective supermarket retail outlets for enquiries. “As a good food safety practice, consumers should wash and soak vegetables to remove any pesticide residues, prior to cooking and consumption,” AVA said.
