Patties Foods Recalls Nannaâ€™s Raspberries linked to a specific source in China, as a precaution: Media Release, 17th Feb 2015
Patties Foods has extended its Consumer Recall to include Nanna’s Raspberries 1kg packs following investigations through our global supply chain over the past few days that have identified the potential link to a specific source of raspberries in China.
Patties Foods MD & CEO, Steven Chaur, said the further recall is a precautionary measure in the interests of public safety.
“While there are no confirmed test results indicating a potential link to Hepatitis A, we are working proactively with Health Authorities based on the information they have presented to date.
“Investigations through our supply chain have identified a specific source of raspberries as a potential common link to the possible safety issues raised by Health Authorities.
“The specific source supplied raspberries which were packed in Nanna’s and Creative Gourmet Mixed Berries, that were the subject of the Consumer Recall announced over the weekend.
“The source also supplied product for Nanna’s Raspberries 1kg packs, with Best Before Dates up until 15/09/16.
“The supplier of raspberries is no longer used by Patties Foods.
“Some product that was previously supplied by the source may still be in the market and we are taking this added precautionary measure of conducting an additional Consumer Recall of all frozen raspberries associated with this specific source located in China, in the interests of public safety.
“The specific source did not supply raspberries for Creative Gourmet Raspberries 300g and 500g packs.
“The Consumer Recall is in advance of further microbiological test results, but given the potential health threat and the level of community concern, we are taking this precautionary measure.
“As a company, we apologise to our consumers and customers for the concern and distress this is causing,” Mr Chaur said.
The Nanna’s and Creative Gourmet frozen fruit products subject to the full Consumer Recall are listed below. Nanna’s fruit pie products are not affected by this recall.
We will continue to work pro-actively with Health Authorities to further investigate this matter.
Consumers are asked not to eat the recalled products, and return the packs to the place of purchase, for a full cash refund.
