CAFIA warns against consumption of Iranian raisins with unauthorised substance


The Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority (CAFIA) detected presence of an unauthorised substance in raisins packaged à 100 kg with best before date by 30th October 2019, lot: L:OB010001019, country of origin: Iran.

The foodstuff contained mineral oil which is not a food substance and must not be contained in a foodstuff. The amount of the used unauthorised oil was 86.1 mg/kg and the producer thus violated Regulation No. 1333/2008 of the European Parliament and Council on food additives.

The lot of raisins in question was placed on the market by seller OŘÍŠEK s.r.o., Šmahova 1371/46, Brno – Slatina. Company Orient Bohemia s.r.o., Jarmily Glazarové 404/21, Olomouc was then the supplier into the Czech Republic.

If consumers have the given lot at home, they definitely should not eat it.

CAFIA notified the detection into the European Rapid Alert Food and Feed System and will initiate an administrative procedure on imposition of a fine with the inspected person.
