15 contaminated Taiwan products banned in the Philippines



The Food and Drugs Administration on Saturday announced a ban on 15 food products from Taiwan found contaminated with an acid commonly used to manufacture plastics and automobile parts.

FDA acting director Dr. Kenneth Hartigan-Go said the following products are not registered with the FDA for selling in the country:

  1. Hong Tapioca Starch
  2. Redman Black Tapioca Pearl
  3. Sun Right Indica Rice Powder
  4. Top 1 Tapioca Pearls
  5. Tea World Tapioca Starch Ball
  6. Unbranded Starch Ball
  7. Ding Long Tapioca Pearls
  8. Sun Chi Noodles
  9. T & M Resources Corp Tapioca Pearls
  10. Pure Tea Tapioca Pearls (White)
  11. Pure Tea Tapioca Pearls (Black)
  12. Full Free Green Tea Tapioca Ball
  13. Full Free Yam Tapioca Ball
  14. Long Kow Vegetarian Instant Rice Noodle
  15. Long Kow Rice Noodle with Thick Soup


“Long-term consumption of high levels of maleic acid could harm the kidney,” Go said.

Republic Act 9711 or the Consumer Act of the Philippines prohibits the manufacture, importation, exportation, sale, offering for sale, distribution, transfer, non-consumer use, promotion, advertising or sponsorship of any health product that is adulterated, unregistered or misbranded.

Go said the ban on the products stays until these are registered in the country by an FDA-licensed food establishment and properly tested for the presence or absence of maleic acid.
