Denmark Issues Recall for Korean Ramen Due to Potential ‘Acute Poisoning’ from Extreme Spiciness

Danish Food Agency Recalls Spicy Ramen Noodles Due to Risk of “Acute Poisoning”

The Danish Food Agency has issued a recall for three South Korean spicy instant ramen noodle products, warning consumers that they are so hot they may cause “acute poisoning”. The affected products are Samyang Buldak 3x Spicy & Hot Chicken, 2x Spicy & Hot Chicken, and Hot Chicken Stew.

According to the agency, the levels of total capsaicin in a single pack of all three noodle products are dangerously high and could lead to acute poisoning. The agency urged consumers to discard the products or return them to the store where they were purchased.

The agency also emphasized the potential danger for children and advised parents to contact a Danish helpline if their children experience any symptoms of acute poisoning.

Capsaicin is the active compound found in chilli peppers that gives them their spicy heat. Samyang Foods, the manufacturer of the recalled products, stated that this is the first time their products have been recalled due to being too spicy.

A spokesperson for the company told AFP news agency that their products are exported worldwide and they will work to better understand local regulations in export markets.

Founded in 1961, Samyang Foods is the first company in South Korea to produce instant noodles. Its headquarters are located in Seoul, the capital city of South Korea.

This recall serves as a reminder to consumers to be cautious when consuming spicy food products and to always follow the recommended serving sizes.
