Tropicana kids orange juice recall

Tropicana kids orange juice recall "Microbial contamination"

Hundreds of cartons of a children's orange juice drink are being recalled after they were found to contain contaminated water.

The multi-packs of Tropicana Kids Orange Juice Drink which have been affected by "microbial contamination" have been recalled by the drinks manufacturer PepsiCo, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said yesterday.

The affected packs are easily identifiable as the individual cartons are unbranded and do not have any batch or date codes on them.

The FSA said in a statement: "If you have bought the affected product, don't drink it.

"The affected cartons will be easy to distinguish because they do not contain any batch or date codes, either on the outside packs or the internal cartons.

"Affected stores have already been informed and point-of-sale notices will be displayed in stores explaining the reason for the recall and the actions customers can take if they have bought the affected product."

Anyone who has bought the affected drink can apply for a full refund by calling the freephone helpline 0800 032 4460.
