Coca-Cola Amatil urgently recalled Appletiser in a 750ml size with the best before dates of June 1 and June 2, 2022 on Wednesday
Coca-Cola Amatil has urgently recalled a popular drink from selected supermarkets over contamination fears.
Food Standards Australia and New Zealand announced on Wednesday that Appletiser, a sparkling apple juice, in a 750ml size with the best before dates of June 1 and June 2, 2022, had been listed for a recall.
The product was found to have an elevated level of microbial mycotoxin-patulin contamination, which Food Standards Australia and New Zealand said can cause illness if consumed.
The World Health Organisation states mycotoxins are naturally occurring toxins created by certain moulds that can be 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 consumed the product and is worried about their health should ‘seek medical advice.’
The product has been available at selected Coles supermarkets in Victoria, NSW and Tasmania
The juice has also been sold at selected Woolworths stores in Victoria, with consumers urged to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund
