The Ministry of Health is still trying to ascertain as to how the soft drink labeled "Spirit Spray" was released into the market.

Spokesperson, Shalvin Deo said they have identified the importer who is away on a business trip and is expected to arrive into the country next week.

Deo added that they are also looking into the import permit, labeling requirements, Health Licenses and border control.

Sixteen students in Savusavu had to seek medical attention after consuming this "soft drink" earlier this month.

This product has been recalled from shops and canteens.

Meanwhile, Consumer Council of Fiji had earlier said that the product is from China.
