TAIPEI, Taiwan — The Public Health Bureau of Miaoli County yesterday revealed that the
imported rose tea material for local English-themed soft drink chain Stornaway (英國藍) contains 13 kinds of pesticides, including four kinds of dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT).
According to Food Hygiene Division head Lin Yu-chen (林玉禎), a consumer bought a “Rose Petal Ice Tea” from one of the beverage company’s Miaoli branches in March this year. After drinking her tea, the woman reportedly developed symptoms including dizziness and weakness in all four limbs.
The woman reportedly assumed that she had caught the flu initially, and decided to purchase another cup of the same beverage the next day. After developing the same symptoms, she reported the problem to the local health bureau in Miaoli. [FULL STORY]
