Following reports that 5 people in Malaysia were hospitalised after drinking Coffee Tree MyCafe “4-in-1 Penang Durian White Coffee, a Singapore man was also hospitalised after drinking the instant drink.

The man’s wife, 43-year-old Mdm Tay who lives in Ang Mo Kio, says that her husband would drink one sachet of the drink, which cost about S$5.00 a bag, per day for about 3-4 days.

After a few days of drinking the coffee, her husband suddenly suffered from bouts of vomiting and also experienced a faster heart rate. She told reporters that her husband’s blood pressure was higher than usual, as well.

Mdm Tay tried the coffee herself and said: “The coffee was very sweet and tasted strongly of durian, but didn’t have much coffee flavour.”

In the face of such recent reports, Coffee Tree has maintained that it is “confident” that its products are “suitable for all”. The company added: “No one has turned up to complain about the product. We only got to know about the incident via social media.”

The Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) has, however, decided to recall the instant drink. It said on it’s Facebook page yesterday:

“Arising from reports of consumers in Malaysia being hospitalised after drinking Coffee Tree MyCafe “4-in-1 Penang Durian White Coffee”, AVA has followed up with our counterparts in Malaysia to request for facts of the case.
“While the case is under investigation, AVA has instructed a recall of Coffee Tree MyCafe “4-in-1 Penang Durian White Coffee” from Malaysia as a precautionary measure. Consumers who have purchased the product can return them to the retailer. AVA will be taking samples for food safety tests.
“Consumers who do not feel well after consuming any food products should seek medical attention. As a good food safety practice, when in doubt of the safety of a food product, do not consume.”
