Japanese beverage company Suntory has issued a recall for some of its Ribena cordial drinks in Malaysia and Singapore.

In a press release on Friday (Aug 11), Suntory's regional general manager for Malaysia, Hong Kong and Singapore Lee Hon Tong said: "We wish to announce that during a routine quality check in our factory, we found one error in our manufacturing process."

The company discovered a faulty bottling machine which allowed air to enter random bottles which may spoil before the stated expiry date.

The Ribena brands being recalled have the following expiring dates:
  • Ribena Cordial Blackcurrant (May until August 2018)*
  • Ribena Cordial Blackcurrant and Glucose (May until August 2018)*
  • Ribena Cordial Blackcurrant and Strawberry (February until March 2018)* 
  • Ribena Cordial Blackcurrant and Blueberry (February until March 2018)
  • Ribena Cordial Blackcurrant and Apple (April until May 2018)* 
In Singapore, the recall (*) has been completed, said AVA.
