The Centre for Food Safety (CFS) of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department today (June 4) announced that four kinds of canned coffee beans imported from the United States (US) are being recalled regardless of batches, as the coffee beans might eject from the can when opened, causing injury. The CFS urged the public not to open the affected products. The trade should also stop using or selling the affected products immediately if they possess them.

A CFS spokesman said, "The CFS, through its Food Incident Surveillance System, noted that all batches of the above-mentioned products were under recall by the manufacturer as the coffee beans might eject from the can when opened, which might cause injury. Upon learning of the incident, the CFS immediately contacted local major importers and retailers for follow-up." 

The spokesman said that preliminary investigation found that a local importer, City Super Limited, had imported a total of about 1 100 cans of the above four affected products into Hong Kong and some of them were distributed for sale at its chain supermarkets. The importer concerned has removed from shelves and stopped sale of the affected products, and initiated a recall according to the CFS' instructions. Members of the public may call the importer's hotline 2736 3866 during office hours for enquiries.
      
The spokesman urged members of the public not to open the affected products if they have bought any. The trade should also stop using or selling the products concerned immediately.
      
The CFS will alert the trade to the incident, continue to follow up and take appropriate action. Investigation is ongoing.
