Juice drinks recalled amid contamination fears

The Republic's Food Safety Authority is recalling certain batches of bottled juice drinks due to concerns about possible contamination.

The authority says the batches of Killowen Orchard juices are being taken off the shelves due to the presence of high levels of patulin, a toxic contaminant produced naturally by moulds in fruit

The products being recalled are the 750ml pure Irish apple juice, apple juice with strawberry and apple juice with blueberry.

The FSA says the contamination does not present an immediate risk to consumers, but long-term consumption could damage the immune system and nervous system.
