AVA says Ma Ling luncheon meat safe for consumption

The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) has assured consumers here that the Ma Ling brand of luncheon meat meets local food safety standards.

This follows a study by Hong Kong's consumer watchdog which found that a sample of Ma Ling premium pork luncheon meat contained residues of a veterinary drug known as sulphonamide antibiotic. If taken in large quantities in humans, it could cause reactions such as hives, rash, swollen face, mouth and tongue.
