Parmalat recalls contaminated PureJoy apple juice

By Staff Writer
Parmalat has recalled a batch of its 200ml PureJoy apple juice with the straw as it believes that small number of the packs were contaminated with cleaning chemicals due to a problem in the factory. The dairy business stressed that the juice is unfit for consumption.
press release from Parmalat says that consumers who have purchased 200ml UHT PureJoy apple juice with the expiration dates E 14.12.15 and E 15.12.15 on them are advised to phone Parmalat on 0860 66 44 22 or email them on for immediate collection and refund of the apple juice.
Reports claim that the contamination is mainly limited to PureJoy apple juices distributed to the Western Province. The PureJoy apple juice has been recalled from all distributors, as well as from possible stores where the product had already been sent.
André Mahoney, a Parmalat spokesperson, has said: "All the unsold affected products have already been recalled from our distribution system, as well as, where possible, from the stores to which it had been distributed. Our records indicate that the distribution for primary sale was most likely limited to the Western Cape, but we recognise that consumers or distributors could have taken the product into other areas."
The press release adds that "a thorough investigation of production records has enabled Parmalat to isolate the problem to a production time window of less than five minutes. Parmalat is continuing its investigation while following the voluntary recall process."
