IAM urges the public not to consume an alcoholic drink that may pose safety risks

MACAU, April 12 - The Municipal Affairs Bureau (IAM) is informed of the potential risks posed by an alcoholic drink that may contain the chemical substance ethylene glycol and has issued a food alert to the local food sector without any delay, requiring members of the sector to put an immediate halt to the supply and sale of the relevant product if they have it in stock. Meanwhile, IAM has sent personnel to carry out inspection to businesses on the market and urges the public not to consume the relevant product.
