Barr Lemonade Recall [UK]

UK FSA RecallUK/London: AG Barr Ltd recalls some Barr Lemonade due to undeclared Aspartame, a serious health hazard for some people. FSA: http://ht.ly/mFGvS

Direct link: http://www.food.gov.uk/news-updates/recalls-news/2013/jul/ag-barr

Additional information:
The UK Food Standards Agency (“FSA”) reports the following food is subject to this recall:

  • Barr Lemonade. 500ml bottle; Best before: Dec 2013; Batch code 3083

About Aspartame:
Aspartame, a synthetic sugar substitute, is composed mainly of two amino acids: aspartic acid and phenylalanine. Aspartame is estimated to be about 200 times sweeter than sugar and is commonly used in “sugar-free” drinks and foods. NutraSweet and Equal are two brand names of popular Aspartame-based products.

Phenylketonuria (“PKU”) is a genetic disorder in which a person cannot metabolize (i.e., break down and use) phenylalanine, one of the two main ingredients of Aspartame. In people with PKU, levels of phenylalanine can increase in the blood to the point where other key chemicals are prevented from getting to the brain. Children with PKU, for example, can suffer from abnormal brain development if dietary phenylalanine is not restricted or completely eliminated.

Undeclared Aspartame, therefore, is an urgent health situation which, if consumed can have profound, life-altering consequences for those suffering with Phenylketonuria.

About Milk, Nut & Wheat Allergies:
For some people, milk (and milk products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, milk products may not “look” or “sound” like milk. Some examples of foods with milk proteins include artificial butter or cheese flavor; casein or caseinates; curds; ghee; hydrolysates; lactalbumin and lactalbumin phosphate; lactose, lactoglobulin, lactoferrin and lactulose; and finally, rennet (originally, ground calves’ stomach but more often now, by-products of genetically engineered bacteria, mold or yeast).

For other people, tree nuts are a source of dangerous, urgent and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to tree nuts within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

For still others, wheat (and wheat products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, wheat products may not “look” or “sound” like wheat. People with a wheat allergy should suspect products such as all breads, cakes, breakfast cereals, pasta, crackers, beer, soy sauce and even condiments, such as ketchup, as having wheat unless specifically declared otherwise.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.

It is important to note that a person allergic to one type of food may also be allergic to others. Multiple undeclared allergens may compound symptoms in susceptible persons.
