DUMEX CAMBODIA – Press Release

Dumex Products in Cambodia Not Affected by Recall of Singapore Mamil Gold Infant Formula

Dumex Cambodia acknowledges that the Cambodia Import-Export Inspection and Fraud Repression Directorate-General (CAMCONTROL), on 29th August, issued a precautionary statement on the import and distribution in Cambodia of Dumex Mamil Gold Infant Formula-Step 1 with the batch number 09117R1. This followed a precautionary recall of the product in Singapore upon reports that the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) had detected the possible presence of Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria from one specific batch of the product. This product is manufactured for and sold only in Singapore, and is not available for sale in Cambodia.

This is an isolated incident, and there have been no cases of Cronobacter infection associated with the consumption of formula milk reported to the Ministry of Health Singapore this year. To date, we can also confirm that we have not received any consumer reports with regards to our range of products in Cambodia. Dumex would like to underscore our commitment to working hand-in-hand with CAMCONTROL to safeguard the integrity of all brands sold by Dumex in Cambodia.

At Dumex, the quality and safety of our products is our absolute priority. For all our products, we have in place stringent processes and conduct rigorous tests that are of international standards. We would like to confirm that consumers in Cambodia can continue to consume all Dumex products.
