We fully acknowledge that these batches do not meet the great product experience we are known for.

Our dedicated team of experts in our laboratories have conducted comprehensive tests on the batches to investigate the cause of the problem to prevent it from happening again.

So far, the root cause identified on the recent quality issue on FanYogo is due to both a recent change in our starch source and variations in handling.

We are in touch with our regulator (Food & Drugs Authority) on the issue, and we are working closely with them to resolve this matter.

We are sorry for all the inconvenience this has caused and appreciate your patience in waiting to hear from us.

Thank you for your continued support and loyalty.

We are dedicated and committed to restoring the great FanYogo experience you love.
