According to the CTSI, NUA Naturals has recalled its Organic Apricot Kernels, 175 gram size container due to an update in labelling recommendations as directed by the UK Food Safety Agency. The reason is that the packaging on the recalled Apricot Kernels states usage of, “No more than 3 to 5 per day”. This exceeds the maximum level of 1 to 2 per day as recommended by the FSA in order to avoid any potential health risk.

The UK Food Standards Agency states that consumption of bitter apricot kernels should not exceed 1 to 2 kernels per adult per day due to potential for acute and long term toxic effects associated with cyanide poisoning, a natural toxin in bitter apricot kernels.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Organic Apricot Kernels, please do not consume them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store or outlet where you purchased it for a full refund or exchange.
