Les vergers Boiron withdraw several batches of Passion Fruit Puree.
As part of the quality controls carried out on all our frozen fruit puree, Les vergers Boiron withdraw several batches of frozen Passion Fruit puree, which do not comply with European standards.
Your satisfaction is our priority and we apply an intensive monitoring process to continuously control the quality of our fruit puree.
During an internal quality control testing, we detected a non compliance involving several batches of frozen Passion Fruit puree. Our analysis revealed a level of lead higher than what allowed by European standards. We immediately alerted the French authorities, Direction Départementale à la Protection des Populations of Drôme area (DDPP 26).
In cooperation with the French authorities, we are carrying out an operation to withdraw trays and buckets of Passion Fruit puree from the market.
We ask our distributors and importers to proceed as follows:
- If you have products of these batches in stock, please discontinue selling or distributing the products and destroy all such products;
- If some of these products have already been sold, please inform your customers and ask them to discontinue using the products.
An internal crisis team was mobilized to pilot this procedure. It has conducted an internal investigation and analyzed the possible factors of contamination (water, industrial process, supply, environment ...). This traceability study identified a specific supplier. His lots were blocked and subjected to extensive investigations.
