Consumer Advisory Issued For Minn. Apple Cider

ST. PAUL (WCCO) — The Minnesota Department of Agriculture issued a consumer advisory for a certain Pepin Heights apple cider because laboratory tests showed it was contaminated.

Both the MDA and Pepin Heights Orchards are advising consumers to avoid drinking Honeycrisp 100 Percent Fresh Pressed Apple Cider.

The product may be contaminated with a mycotoxin called patulin, which is formed by certain kinds of fungi.

The affected product was sold in half-gallon plastic jugs with the “USE BY” date of “FEB 09 12” and they were distributed in Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin.

Any consumers with the product are asked to discard it.
