“We would like to clarify that Ethylene Oxide is not added in Lucky Me! products. It is a commonly used treatment in spices and seeds to control microbial growth typical in agricultural products. These materials, when processed into seasoning and sauces, may still show traces of Ethylene Oxide,” the company said in a statement.

“The recall affects other companies’ noodle brands and multiple categories such as ice cream, sesame seed, spices, calcium carbonate supplements, among others,” it added.

The management also assured the public that all Lucky Me! products are registered by the Philippines’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and complied with local food safety standards, as well as with the US FDA standards for use of ethylene oxide.
