The FDA has released an advisory announcement. This Advisory is related to the Pepin Heights brand Honeycrisp Apple Cider with the “Use By” date of Feb 09 2012. Consumers are advised to discard the Apple Cider manufactured and distributed by Pepin Heights. They may also contact the place of purchase to schedule a return of the product for a full refund.
There have been no illnesses reported to the company up to this day so this is just a precautionary recall issued by the company along the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Consumers should respond to this alert promptly since tests have revealed that the Honeycrisp Apple Cider product may contain an elevated level of patulin, which is a natural byproduct of different kinds of mold. According to the FDA, a long-term exposure to this substance can cause illnesses.
As a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, I encourage readers to respond to this recall immediately. Never delay in returning a food product that has been contaminated; the health consequences can be worrisome. Stay safe and protect the health of your family and loved ones by being on top of all recall news.
For any questions regarding a possible personal injury case related to a recalled item, contact a personal injury lawyer in your area right away.
