Apple Sidra maker recalls problematic products
Taipei, Aug. 23 (CNA) The New Taipei-based maker of Apple Sidra has launched a recall of 2-liter bottles of the soda from the domestic market that were determined as substandard after consumers complained of foreign substances being seen in the beverage.
Oceanic Beverage Co., Inc.'s management division chief Hsieh Cheng-sheng (謝政成) told CNA on Friday that the company received such a complaint on Aug. 14, and retailer PX Mart informed it of also hearing of substances spotted in 2-liter bottles of Apple Sidra.
The company is trying to find out what caused the problem, said Hsieh, who estimated that about 80,000 of the 2-liter bottles of the drink could be problematic.
As a precaution and to give customers peace of mind, the company decided to recall and destroy all 2-liter bottles of Apple Sidra produced between July 1 and Aug. 18, or 1.2 million bottles in total, according to Hsieh.
He also said the 2-liter production line has been shut down while two other production lines that make Apple Sidra in other bottle sizes continue to operate normally.
