Manufacturer recalls apple juice because of mold

Diesdorfer Süßmost-, Weinkelterei & Edeldestille GmbH has started a recall for a batch of the product "Diesdorfer apple juice clear". According to the company, the bottling concerned is likely to be contaminated with mold.

Diesdorfer Süßmost-, Weinkelterei & Edeldestille GmbH is calling back the article "Diesdorfer Apfelsaft clear" in the 1.0 liter bottle with the best before date (best before date) 07/2021 and the batch number L190724-1. The reason for the measure is a high content of patulin, as reported by the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety on its portal "lebensmittelwarnung.de". Patulin is a mold poison.

Ingestion is not recommended

In a product recall, which was published on "lebensmittelwarnung.de", it says that the above-mentioned bottling in July 2019 "is probably a product that has been spoiled by mold". “It cannot be ruled out that the consumption of this product represents a possible health hazard. Consumption is therefore not recommended, ”the company writes. Purchased goods can be returned where they were bought. The purchase price will be refunded.

Nerve poison can lead to vomiting and indigestion

As the Lower Saxony State Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (LAVES) explains on its website, Patulin was classified by the SCF (Scientific Committee on Food) as genotoxic, but not as carcinogenic. "It is considered a nerve poison and can lead to vomiting, indigestion (gastric mucosal inflammation including bleeding), in some cases also bleeding in the kidney, spleen or liver," writes the authority.

According to the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety (LGL), patulin is often found in fruit juices, especially in apple juice. Since November 1, 2003, the European Union has set maximum levels for patulin in various fruit juices, fruit juice products and fruit products, especially from apples. (ad)
