BARELY a week after 7-Eleven recalled its stock of the popular Taiwanese milk tea product, Chun Cui He Milk Tea, another popular food product has been pulled from the shelves – Sakusaku Cheese Corn. The cheesy snack was part of a series of Japanese tidbits introduced last month.
Unlike the milk tea that was pulled because of an unapproved additive however, it seems the recall this time was over… spelling.
Responding to queries, a spokesman for 7-Eleven Singapore said the product was removed temporarily due to spelling errors on its ingredient label. For example, “liquorice” was spelt as “licorice”, and “artificial” spelt as “artificail”.
Said the spokesman: “The products were returned to our supplier who will make the amendments to the labels for future new shipments of stock. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to fans of the Sakusaku Cheese Corn during this period.”
The Sakusaku Cheese Corn snack, cooked with cheddar, camembert and cream cheese flavours, was part of a series of 12 premium Japanese snacks under the 7-Select brand.
