MACAO - Macao authority has recalled five more medicines, the Macao Daily Times reported on Friday.

The newspaper quoted a press statement released by the city's Health Bureau (SSM) as saying that the Hong Kong health authorities found plasticizer DEHP in "Well Tab," a medicine for stomach discomfort manufactured by China Chemical & Pharmaceutical and Pharm Company Limited, Taiwan.

Apart from recalling "Well Tab," the Hong Kong authority also endorsed the voluntary recall of four pharmaceutical products manufactured by Marching Pharmaceutical Limited even though no plasticizer was found.

Concerning that these products have all been imported into Macao, the SSM has asked local pharmacies, drug stores and distributors to remove these products from the market and also called on the public not to use these medicines if they have purchased them.

On Tuesday, an anti-gastric acid syrup, "Scrat Suspension Standard," was also recalled after examinations discovered DIBP, one of the 16 types of plasticizers that should not be used in food.
