Don’t drink Organic Apple or Blackcurrant from Australia – NAFDAC warns Nigerians (Updated: 2 years ago)


The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), has cautioned Nigerians to stop the consumption of an organic apple and blackcurrant originating from Australia.

This was disclosed by the agency’s Director-General, Moji Adeyeye. She said that the products had been certified harmful for human consumption.

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 which could induce liver, spleen and kidney damage.” She said.

She added that the toxic level would affect the immune system and cause nausea, gastrointestinal disturbance and vomiting.

Therefore, she implored importers, distributors, retailers and consumers to immediately stop the importation, distribution, sale and consumption of the affected fruit juice.

She urged members of the public in possession of the affected fruit juice to submit stock to the nearest NAFDAC office.
