Ban on sale of Indian spices in Hong Kong and Singapore

Hong Kong and Singapore have banned the sale of Indian spice brands MDH and Everest.

According to a foreign news agency, Indian spices are suspected of containing harmful ingredients that may pose a risk of cancer, so the ingredients included in Indian spices have been declared unsuitable.

According to reports, Hong Kong suspended the sale of two Indian companies MDH and Everest spices this month due to the presence of harmful chemicals in them, while Singapore also sent back the spices of Indian companies due to harmful chemical ingredients.
