Fruzio Frozen Mixed Berry recall

We are pleased MPI has identified a brand of frozen berries through its testing regime. The Fruzio Mixed Berry recall means any customer with Fruzio Mixed Berries sold in 1kg and 500 gram bags with an expiry date up to 7 October 2018 in their freezer should now discard the product. 

Food safety is of paramount concern to us and we are continuing to collaborate with MPI to ensure all appropriate actions are being taken and customer safety around this issue is maintained.

While the MPI testing process continues guidance for consumers is to apply good food safety hygiene when consuming frozen berries remains in place including;

•  Wash your hands before eating and preparing food

•  Berries can briefly be boiled before eating (temperatures must exceed 85 degrees Celsius for one minute)

•  Immunocompromised persons and those with liver damage should avoid frozen berries or products containing frozen berries.

If consumers have any concern about their health or that of their family then they should seek advice from their local medical practitioner, or call the Ministry of Health’s Healthline (0800 611 116).
