Caution!!! Do Not Take Apple, Blackcurrant From Australia, NAFDAC Tells Nigerians


A note of caution has been issued to Nigerians by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) telling them to stop the consumption of an organic apple and black currant originating from Australia.

This was as disclosed by the Director-General, NAFDAC, Prof. Moji Adeyeye adding 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 unacceptable level of patulin (a mycotoxin) which had exceeded the maximum limit in fruit juice,” she said.
