BABY formula brand Wyeth has been recalled from shelves here 'as a precautionary measure'.

The Singapore manufactured milk formula, which is exported to foreign markets but re-imported here independently, contains lutein, a type of food colouring.

The import and sale of infant and follow-up formulae containing lutein is currently not allowed. But a spokesman for the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) said there is no immediate cause for alarm.
