SPEED UP THE RECALL OF RIBENA® CORDIAL

The Consumers’ Association of Penang (CAP) is concerned about the recall of several RIBENA® products by the manufacturer recently.

According to the manufacturer, the recall involved the following products and expiry dates:

RIBENA® flavour (all size packs) Expiry Date

RIBENA®Blackcurrant Cordial May to August 2018

RIBENA®Blackcurrant& Glucose May to August 2018

RIBENA®Blackcurrant& Strawberry February to August 2018

RIBENA®Blackcurrant& Blueberry February to August 2018

RIBENA®Blackcurrant& Apple April to May 2018

We want to know if the recall had started because some retailers are giving special discounts on the product during the first week of August.

We urge the authorities to remove all the affected products from the shelves and announce to the public soonest possible.

Consumers who have bought these products to return them and seek refund from the outlets where they have bought them.

On the other hand, we also want to call upon consumers to drink fresh fruit juices that they extract rather than sugar-laden cordials and ‘fruit juices’ that come in boxes or bottles.
