pure tassie apple and blackcurrant

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control(NAFDAC) has been informed that the Centre for Food Safety (CFS) of Hong Kong’s Food and Environmental Hygiene Department has warned against the consumption of Pure Tassie Organic Apple and Blackcurrant Juice originating from Australia. This was due to an unacceptable level of patulin (a mycotoxin) which had exceeded the maximum limit in fruit juice.

Possible Health Risk

The level of patulin content in the affected fruit juice can induce liver, spleen, and kidney damage. It is toxic to the immune system and causes nausea, gastrointestinal disturbance, and vomiting.

Product details

The details of the affected products are as follows;

Product Manufacturer:  Pure Tassie

10 Runway Place, Cambridge, Tasmania,

 Australia 7170.

Product Name: Organic Apple and Blackcurrant Juice

NAFDAC implores importers, distributors, retailers, and consumers to immediately stop the importation, distribution, sale, and consumption of the affected fruit juice.

Any member of the public in possession of the affected fruit juice should submit stock to the nearest NAFDAC office.

Healthcare professionals and consumers are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of this product to the nearest NAFDAC office, NAFDAC PRASCOR (20543 TOLL-FREE from all networks), via pharmacovigilance@nafdac.gov.ng or via the NAFDAC ADR e-Reporting platform available at www.nafdac.gov.ng

Thanks for this important  update, for those drinking this product,  it is better to stop drinking it now until they certified  it okay again and I wish almost everyone  see this post.

The bottle of this product looks enticing enough to disregard  the message of NAFDAC but the manufacturer should do something about this health hazard of his product.
