Dear Students and Colleagues,

HKU Catering: "Substandard Cooking Oil" Incident in Taiwan

Immediately after the announcements of the Centre of Food Safety (CFS) in the past few days regarding the “Substandard Cooking Oil” incident in Taiwan, CEDARS has taken this up with all of our Caterers, trying to make sure no such substandard cooking oil has been used in their products served on our campus.

From the information we have collected so far, most of the catering outlets in the University are using vegetable oils (e.g. seeds oil, soybean oil, etc.) as cooking oil for food production on site.  As the use of lard in cooking process is not common in the campus catering outlets, the risk and extent of which the University community may be affected by this incident shall be relatively low.  Nevertheless, CEDARS will keep you posted once we have got hold of more information, if any, related to this incident.

Thank you for your attention.

Dear Students and Colleagues,

Subway – Declaration of Azodicarbonamide-Free Bread

Referring to the recent news coverage on the use of azodicarbonamide – an additive that is not supposed to be found in food for human consumption and may be potentially harmful to human (causing allergy, respiratory symptoms and asthma) upon consumption at high level, in bread served in Subway outlets in the North America region,  Subway Hong Kong Headquarter has recently made a formal declaration that the bread served in all Subway outlets in Hong Kong (including the outpost in HKU) comes from another source (i.e. New Zealand) and does not contain even a trace amount of azodicarbonamide.  Their products are therefore totally safe for human consumption.  CEDARS will keep the University community inform of the latest update on this matter, if any.

Thank you for your attention.
