Crab sticks fingered by Sweden

A Singaporean producer of crab sticks has been identified by the Swedish national food administration, SLV, as one of four companies that fail to declare soy protein in their products sold in Sweden.
     SLV was alerted on the problem when a Swedish boy fell severely ill in an allergic reaction after having eaten imported Ullmo brand crab sticks. The boy is allergic to soy protein. This brand’s crab sticks contained 1.7 percent undeclared soy proteins.
     An analysis of all imported crab stick products revealed undeclared soy protein in lots from three more brands: Pandalus, Eldorado and Lobster. The latter is the Singaporean brand.
     All lots containing the undeclared substance have been recalled by the importers.
