Patties Foods extends Nanna’s Frozen Mixed Berries Consumer Recall to include Creative Gourmet Mixed Berries: Media Release, 15th Feb 2015
Patties Foods has today extended its Consumer Recall of Nanna’s Frozen Mixed Berries to include Creative Gourmet Mixed Berries 300g and 500g packs, as a precautionary measure, in the interests of public safety.
This follows the announcement yesterday of a Consumer Recall of Nanna’s Frozen Mixed Berries 1kg packs, on advice from the Victorian Health Department of potential Hepatitis A contamination.
Patties Foods MD & CEO, Steven Chaur, said “while our quality control testing to date has not revealed any concerns with the food safety of either product, further detailed testing is being done and the recall is an important step to ensure public safety and confidence.
“We have decided that all our frozen Mixed Berries should be recalled until such time as we receive the results of further laboratory tests,” Mr Chaur said.
A detailed testing process is continuing with health authorities.
The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services fully supports the actions taken by Patties Foods.
The Consumer Recall is for:
- Nanna’s Mixed Berries 1kg, All Batches up to and including Best Before Date 22/11/16
- Creative Gourmet Mixed Berries 300g, All Batches up to and including Best Before Date 10/12/17
- Creative Gourmet Mixed Berries 500g, All Batches up to and including Best Before Date 06/10/17
Patties Foods advises consumers not to eat the product, and return packs to the place of purchase for a full cash refund.
Grocery customers have been advised to remove the product from sale, and Consumer Recall advertising is being conducted in national daily newspapers.
All other Nanna’s, Creative Gourmet and Patties Foods products remain unaffected by this recall.
“We thank our consumers and customers for their understanding during this difficult time and assure them the company is doing its best to investigate the matter, answer consumer enquiries and protect public safety.
“Our Consumer Hotline remains open from 7am to 9pm daily to assist consumers with enquiries,” Mr Chaur said.
Consumers with enquiries are asked to call the Consumer Hotline, 1800 650 069, between 7am and 9pm AEDT.
