The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) said on Saturday (Jan 11) that it has directed food specialist Classic Fine Foods to recall the Bouchot live mussels from France.
In a media release, SFA said that the European Commission Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed has issued a recall for the live mussels from Baie Du Mont-Saint-Michel Aop in France "due to the presence of a norovirus".
Some batches of the product were imported into Singapore, said the agency, adding that the importer - Classic Fine Foods - has been directed to recall them.
Those who have eaten the mussels and display gastroenteritis symptoms are advised to consult their doctor for medical assistance immediately, said SFA.
