The Singapore Food Authority (SFA) has directed Frosts Food & Beverage (Pte.) Ltd, a local importer of Haagen-Dazs ice cream, to recall two products due to the presence of ethylene oxide.

Ethylene oxide is a pesticide not approved for use on food.

According to a Facebook post by SFA, there are no immediate risks from consuming food contaminated with low levels of ethylene oxide, but long-term exposure can lead to health problems.

The two products are:

Häagen-Dazs Belgian Chocolate Ice Cream (100ml)

  • Expiration date: June 8, 2023
  • Country of Origin: France

Häagen-Dazs Cookies & Cream Ice Cream (473ml)

  • Expiration date: May 27, 2023
  • Country of Origin: France

It is recommended not to take

The recall comes after the European Commission Food Alert’s Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) issued a product recall notice.

Consumers who have purchased the relevant product are advised not to consume it.

Anyone who consumes it and has health concerns should seek medical attention.
