Coca-Cola Amatil urgently recalled Appletiser in a 750ml size on Wednesday with expiration dates of June 1 and June 2, 2022
Coca-Cola Amatil has urgently recalled a popular drink from select supermarkets over fears of contamination.
Food Standards Australia and New Zealand announced on Wednesday that Appletiser, a sparkling apple juice, in a 750ml size with expiration dates of June 1 and June 2, 2022, is on the list for a recall.
The juice has been on sale at select Woolworths stores in Victoria and Coles supermarkets in Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania.
The product was found to have an increased level of microbial mycotoxin patulin contamination, which according to Food Standards Australia and New Zealand can cause illness if consumed.
The World Health Organization states that mycotoxins are naturally occurring toxins produced by certain fungi found in apples.
Those who purchased the apple juice have been urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Anyone who has consumed the product and is concerned about their health should “seek medical advice.”
The product has been available at select Coles supermarkets in Victoria, NSW and Tasmania
The juice has also been sold in select Woolworths stores in Victoria, urging consumers to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.
