Spices maker MDH says its products safe for consumption, received no communication from Hong Kong or Singapore

In a response to the allegations made against the spices of MDH, it said its products doesn’t contain ethylene oxide or any other harmful products as well as the company has not got any communication from regulators and authorities in Hong Kong or Singapore about alleged contamination in its products.

Hong Kong earlier this month banned the selling of 3 MDH spice blends and an Everest spice mix for fish curries. Singapore ordered a recall of the Everest spice mix as well, saying the spices contains high levels of ethylene oxide, which is harmful for human consumption and a cancer risk with long exposure.

“We reassure our buyers and consumers that we do not use ethylene oxide at any stage of storing, processing, or packing our spices,” MDH said in a statement on Sunday.
