HCM CITY — Regarding the recalled shipment of Fami Calcium Soy Milk in Chiba City, Japan, the Việt Nam Soymilk Company (Vinasoy) on Monday evening said that the National Institute for Food Control had had negative test results for the control sample of the recalled batch.

The result confirmed that the Fami Calcium Soy Milk sample was not contaminated with the Coliforms bacteria.

Thus, after waiting for objective test results from a third party, Vinasoy confirmed that "Fami Calcium Soy Milk products completely meet the standards, ensuring safety and quality for consumers' health".

Previously, Japanese NHK news channel reported that Vietnamese soy milk products contaminated with Coliform bacteria were detected in Japan on March 28.

After that, some channels misinterpreted information and spread it on social media that Fami Calcium Soy Milk was found to have cancer-causing bacteria in Japan.

Vinasoy said that the Chiba City requested Next Trading company to recall the shipment of Fami Calcium Soy Milk suspected of being infected with Coliform including 15 boxes of 200 millilitre milk and 10 one-litre cans.

After receiving the information, the importer in Japan recalled the entire shipment and sent samples to a third unit in Japan for inspection.

Regarding the information spread on social networking sites, Vinasoy confirmed that the information did not have scientific evidence or any official statements by agencies in Japan. — VNS
