Presence of pesticides and excess ethylene oxide in fish curry masala

Singapore: Everest Fishery Masala imported from India has been recalled in Singapore. The action was taken after the detection of excessive presence of ethylene oxide, a pesticide that is harmful to the human body. The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) ordered the recall of Everest Food Masala.

Ethylene oxide is a pesticide commonly used to kill microorganisms on agricultural crops. It is banned in food products as it is harmful to health. The Singapore Food Agency says the presence of pesticides in Everest Fish Curry Masala may cause health problems for consumers.

A few days ago, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry had instructed the e-commerce companies not to sell Cadbury’s Bonvita under the health drink category.
