[CNA] S'pore has not imported Meiji milk powder: AVA

SINGAPORE: Singapore's food watchdog, the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA), said it has not imported Meiji brand milk powder into the country since March 2011. AVA suspended dairy products and infant formula, including baby food containing milk, from four prefectures - Fukushima, Ibaraki, Tochigi and Gunma - following the March 11th earthquake and tsunami that crippled a nuclear plant in Japan. Dairy products from other prefectures are subject to AVA's sampling programme. AVA said that dairy products from Japan that are in the market are safe for consumption. AVA said this following Japan's recall of 400,000 cans of "Meiji Step" formula, after a small amount of radioactive caesium-134 and ceasium-137 was found in the baby formula, most likely a fallout from the country's crippled nuclear plant.
