Recall of “Pure Tassie Organic Apple & Raspberry Juice” and “Pure Tassie
Organic Apple & Blackcurrant Juice” due to contamination with patulin
The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has detected patulin, a mycotoxin, in
samples of various batches of “Pure Tassie Organic Apple & Raspberry Juice” and
“Pure Tassie Organic Apple & Blackcurrant Juice”, at levels exceeding the maximum
limit[1] for patulin in fruit juice as stated in the Singapore Food Regulations.

the products. The recall is ongoing. This comes after an earlier recall[2] of a batch of
