Food safety incidentsEdit
In 2001, the United Kingdom Food Standards Agency (FSA) found in tests of various sauces including soy sauces that 22% of samples contained the carcinogen 3-MCPD as well as its derivative 1,3-DCP at levels considerably higher than those deemed safe by the European Union.
Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ, formerly ANZFA) followed FSA research and took actions. "President Creamy Soy Sauce" from Taiwan is on the ban list in the second round testing.
