Additionally, wholesalers are advised to voluntarily recall this product with immediate effect. 

Representatives from the Chemistry, Food and Drugs Division and the Office of the Chief Public Health Inspector will conduct inspections at wholesalers, retailers and other establishments which offer food for sale. This is to ensure that this product is not consumed.
