FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 15, 2010 - New York State Agriculture Commissioner Patrick Hooker today alerted consumers that Pats Exotic Beverages Inc., located at 2919 Tiemann Avenue, Bronx, New York, is recalling all packages of "Carrot Juice" beverage, "Carrot Beet" beverage, "Carrot Lime" beverage and "Cucumber" beverage, because the products have been determined to be inadequately processed and may contain food borne pathogens.
Food borne pathogens can cause a variety of symptoms including vomiting, abdominal cramps, nausea and diarrhea, fever, headaches, muscle pain or weakness, or death.
The recalled "Carrot Juice" beverage, "Carrot Beet" beverage, "Carrot Lime" beverage and "Cucumber" beverage were sold from retail outlets in the NYC metro area. All packages and codes of these products are subject to the recall.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The potential for contamination was discovered after an inspection conducted by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors found the products were manufactured without the required processes in place to control food borne pathogens. Sales of the products have been suspended.
Consumers who have purchased containers of "Carrot Juice" beverage, "Carrot Beet" beverage, "Carrot Lime" beverage and "Cucumber" beverage, are urged to discard the product or return the product to the place of purchase.
