Tropicana UK Ltd recalls batch of Tropicana Smooth Style Orange Juice
Friday 19 October 2007
Tropicana UK Ltd has recalled a batch of Tropicana Smooth Style Orange Juice due to an unpleasant smell and taste. The Food Standards Agency has issued a Food Alert for Information.
- Tropicana Smooth Style Orange Juice 1 litre
- Use by date: 24/11/07
- Batch code: ZKY TR
- Time stamp: Any time between 03:20 and 04:00
No other Tropicana products or batch codes are known to be affected.
The withdrawal is a direct result of two calls from consumers to the company. These complaints were of a similar nature, reporting an unusual smell on opening the product and an 'off' taste if drunk.
Tropicana UK Ltd has issued a point-of-sale notice, which advises consumers who have bought the affected product to phone the company's freephone helpline for a full refund. The freephone number is: 0800 032 4460.
Food alerts are the FSA's way of letting local authorities and consumers know about problems associated with food and, in some cases, providing details of specific action to be taken. They are issued under two categories:
- Food Alerts: for Action
- Food Alerts: for Information
