Nigerians have been warned by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control to avoid eating an organic apple and black currant coming from Australia.
NAFDAC Director-General, Prof. Moji Adeyeye, who disclosed this, said that the items were deemed to be unsafe for human use.

“The Centre for Food Safety 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.

Adeyeye pointed out that the amount of patulin content in the fruit juice affected could cause damage to the liver, spleen and kidneys.

She added that the level of toxicity would affect the immune system and cause nausea, stomach disease and vomiting.

Adeyeye implored importers, manufacturers, retailers and customers to suspend the import, shipment, selling and consumption of the affected commodities immediately.

The Director-General of NAFDAC urged members of the public who owned the affected fruit to send stock to the nearest NAFDAC office.
