According to a tweet on MRT Singapore Service Information official Twitter account, trains are bunching up as far as Tanah Merah, with some trains terminating at Outram Park instead.

Another commuter update twitter, MRTWatch, noted that the trains are moving slowly.

The most recent update on the situation on Twitter confirms that there is an additional five minutes of travel time for commuters travelling from Paya Lebar to Tiong Bahru due to a track fault.

被指黄曲霉毒素超标 食品局下令召回一款沙爹香料

新加坡食品局发文称,一款名为Instant Satay Spices”的沙爹香料,被指黄曲霉毒素(aflatoxins)含量超标,当局已下令召回产品。 当局指有关产品的黄曲霉毒素已超过我国的标准,有关制造商利光代理公司需召回所有产品。 当局也对该公司生产的其他产品加强检验。若有消费者有购买下述牌子的产品,当局呼吁暂勿食用,若已有食用或对产品有疑虑,宜立即前往咨询医生。 食品局指出,黄曲霉毒素具有遗传毒性甚至致癌,而花生可能在采收前后受到真菌的感染,因此不宜食用。 据世界卫生组织资料,黄曲霉毒素(aflatoxin),也称作黄曲霉素,是由一些真菌产生的一种有强烈生物毒性的化合物。 黄曲霉毒素常由黄曲霉及寄生曲霉等另外几种霉菌在霉变的谷物中产生,如大米、豆类、花生等,是目前为止最强的致癌物质, 可能影响所有器官系统,特别是肝脏和肾脏,可引起肝癌。 一般在高温、高湿度等环境条件,或是在死亡和腐烂植物上,会发现上述霉菌侵害农作物。干旱、昆虫损害和储藏不良,特别是在温暖地区可能导致更多霉菌出现。
