August - Hong Kong: The Centre for Food Safety (CFS) has urged the public not to consume a kind of pre-packed shelled pistachio imported from Italy as it was suspected to be contaminated with aflatoxins.
Pistacchio Crudo, originating in Iran but packed by LIFE S.r.l. at Sommariva Perno, Italy comes in a 1kg pack with a best before date of 30 May 2015.
CFS contacted the importer Ellermann Trading, for marking and sealing of the remaining stock found in the importer's warehouse.
According to the information provided, an amount of the affected product has been delivered to a retailer, but the product has yet to be put on shelves.
CFS believed that the product concerned has not entered the local market.
A spokesman for the CFS said: "The centre received notification from the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed of the European Commission that the kind of pre-packed shelled pistachio was detected with aflatoxins at a level of 282 microgram (µg) per kg.
"The Italian packer has initiated a recall of the affected product. A small amount of the affected product has been imported to Hong Kong."
