Apple Cider Recall announced for Elevated Patulin Levels

Pepin Heights Orchards Issues Cider Advisory -

(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), along with Pepin Heights Orchards, announced a recall of Honeycrisp Apple Cider that has a “Use-By” date of Feb. 09, 2012 because routine testing by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture found somewhat increased levels of patulin, which derived from numerous mold species.

The short-term exposure to patulin has unknown health effects, and no illnesses have been reported or associated with the apple cider. The FDA suspects that long-term exposure to patulin could be problematic.

The apple cider was packaged in half-gallon sized plastic jugs and was distributed in Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

Only the Honeycrisp Apple Cider with the “Use-By” date of February 9, 2012 is involved in the recall. The other “Use-By” dates are not included in this food recall.

The company said that consumers could get a refund of the recalled product by mailing the label from the front of the container to: Pepin Heights Orchards, Attn: Cider Refund, 1753 South Hwy 61, Lake City, MN 55041. The company can be contacted by telephone at (800) 652-3779, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Central Time.
