Pepin Heights Orchards Apple Cider Recall

1/7/12 – Minnesota-based Pepin Heights Orchards says no illnesses have been reported, but it is advising consumers to throw away half-gallon plastic jugs of its Honeycrisp Apple Cider. Wisconsin is one of three states where the product was sold. Minnesota Agriculture Department lab tests found some of the cider may be contaminated with a mycotoxin called patulin. The advisory only applies to Honeycrisp cider with the “use by” date of February 9, 2012.
