This week, the Yu Shen Spice Co Ltd, Taiwan's biggest food additive supplier, was found to have been adding DEHP, a plastic polymer, to a thickening agent.
The tainted food may be on sale in 10 countries and regions, including the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, the United States, (my emphasis)Vietnam and the Philippines, according to the Taiwan Department of Health.
More than 40 food manufacturers - including popular brands such as Yes, Triko and Sunkist - are involved.
Taiwan has started a massive recall of tainted food, including sports drinks, jam, yoghurt, fruit juice and health foods. (my emphasis) It has reported the case to the World Health Organization.
Long term ingestion of DEHP can damage the liver and kidneys, cause female sexual precocity, harm male reproductive capacity and is a possible cause of cancer, health experts said.
