Be Sure Your Working Holiday Insurance is Appropriate & Adequate - CHOICE # 459 (January 15, 2015)

Recalls and Alerts

Further recall of proprietary Chinese medicine with failed microbial limit (January 12, 2015)

The Department of Health (DH) today (January 12) instructed a licensed proprietary Chinese medicine (pCm) manufacturer, Tai Wo Tung Medicine Company, to recall from consumers all batches of a registered pCm, [Tai Wo Tung] Cough Pills (registration number: HKP-03409), as the mould and yeast counts of the pCm exceeded the limits of the registration criteria set out by the Chinese Medicines Board of the Chinese Medicine Council of Hong Kong (CMCHK). This is further to the batch recall of the pCm by Tai Wo Tung on January 2 for the same reason.
