     A spokesman for the CFS said, “The CFS received a notification from the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) of the European Commission that the above-mentioned products may be contaminated with a pesticide, ethylene oxide, which is not authorised by the EU. As informed by RASFF, the origin of the contamination is suspected to be in the vanilla extract that is used in preparation process. The affected products have been imported into Hong Kong. Upon learning of the incident, the CFS immediately contacted local importers for follow-up.”



     The CFS’s follow-up investigations found that the above-mentioned importer had imported the affected batches of the products. Affected batches of the products arrived in Hong Kong are stored inside a warehouse, and have not entered the local market. Since ethylene oxide is not authorised by the EU, for the sake of prudence, the CFS has inspected the warehouse and marked and sealed the product concerned. 



     The CFS will alert the trade to the incident, and will continue to follow up on the incident and take appropriate action. Investigation is ongoing.
