Apple pies recalled over glass contamination
Australian brand Nanna’s has been caught up in a food contamination incident after it was found their apple pies could contain industrial-grade glass.
Nanna’s family size apple pies (600gm) purchased from supermarkets with a use-by date between 21/10/2020 and 22/10/2020 have been recalled, with the company urging customers to return the product for a full refund.
The company addressed the scare on their website, indicating equipment failure from an apple supplier is to blame.
“Patties Foods has been notified by its apple supplier of the possible presence of industrial grade glass in Nanna’s Family Apple Pie (600gm) due to the supplier’s equipment failure,” reads the statement. “Upon notification Patties Foods proactively and voluntarily withdrew the product from stores and begun a thorough investigation.”
The recall is regarded as a precautionary measure as glass has not been found in any products and no customer incidents or complaints have been made.
It’s not the first time Nanna’s has captured national attention, with the brand’s frozen mixed berries linked to a hepatitis A outbreak in 2015.
Consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice.
