Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) today reminded consumers who may have purchased 180gm Creative Gourmet frozen pomegranate product from Coles to destroy any remaining product or return it for a refund.
“We want to ensure all consumers who may have this product are aware of the possible link between the product and hepatitis A,” FSANZ CEO Mark Booth said today.
“The affected product has been recalled but consumers may still have product in their freezers without being aware of the recall."
“Fresh pomegranate and Australian grown frozen pomegranate products have not been implicated in this recall."
“To date nine cases of hepatitis A with epidemiological evidence indicating a link to this particular product have been identified,” Mr Booth said.
The affected product includes all best before dates of up to and including 21/03/20.
