Taiwanese authorities were recently forced to pull food products from shelves after health officials found that a number of locally manufactured drinks as well as food ingredients contained chemicals that could affect the development of adolescents’ reproductive system.
The Food and Drug Administration is now checking to see whether or not some of the edible Taiwanese products containing a toxic chemical have reached store shelves in the Philippines. However, even though the exact names of the products affected haven’t been revealed yet, the FDA has said that supermarket owners should pull some products from Taiwan off their shelves temporarily.
According to the FDA, retail stores and supermarkets will have to remove certain high-risk products from Taiwan from their shelves like jellies, sodas, sports drinks and juices for the time being because they have been suspected of containing a chemical called DEHP.
A report by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has revealed that Taiwan food is contaminated with DEHP, which can be hazardous for health. DEHP has been banned by the government as it is potentially harmful. DEHP is normally used in the manufacturing of articles like intravenous bags and tubings, blood bags and infusion tubings and nasogastric tubes.
Taiwan-based HTC Corp.’s every Android-based phone fetches $5 for software giant Microsoft, a Citigroup report on Microsoft claims.
The newly released report says that Microsoft receives $5 for HTC’s every Android phone as a part of a patent dispute settlement with the Taiwanese manufacturer of smartphones and tablets based on Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows OS.
It has been long now, various brand named items have been found containing toxic chemicals. Therefore, giving a strict reply to such brands, the government has announced to severely punish such brands under the law, for using DEHP in food and drink products.
