Denmark Recalls Spicy Korean Noodles Over Acute Poisoning Risk

Food safety authorities in Denmark have issued a recall for three types of Samyang Foods instant ramen from South Korea, citing potential risks of “acute poisoning” due to extremely high levels of capsaicin. The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration announced that the Buldak 3x Spicy & Hot Chicken, 2x Spicy & Hot Chicken, and Hot Chicken Stew varieties were found to contain capsaicin levels that could pose significant health risks to consumers.

The recall follows concerns that the capsaicin content in a single packet of these noodles is so high it could lead to acute symptoms, particularly in children. Consumers are advised to discard or return the products to the store, and parents are urged to call the Poison Line if their children show signs of acute poisoning. This marks the first time Samyang Foods has faced a recall for excessive heat in its products.

Despite the recall, Samyang Foods continues to enjoy substantial popularity worldwide, with a notable increase in its stock price driven by the viral success of its buldak carbonara ramen on TikTok. The company expressed its commitment to understanding and adhering to local regulations in export markets, as it navigates the challenges of balancing intense flavors with safety standards.
