Contaminant Levels in Soy Sauce.

The Joint Food Safety and Standards Group has contacted trade associations and relevant suppliers in the UK to alert them to reports from Germany, The Netherlands and Sweden about unacceptably high levels of the substance 3-MCPD (3-monochloropropanediol) in some soy sauces. The specific samples in question were imported from China and obtained from catering establishments.

As it is possible that these or similar products are also available in the UK, the food and retail industry have been contacted to ensure that their products comply with the recommended limit for 3-MCPD of 10 parts per billion.
