UAE withdraws juiceThis article was originally published in Foodnews
THE UAE has withdrawn certain batches of Ping Pong juice, a product of Mehdi Foods. The country's Ministry of Environment and Water (MEW) said the recalled products had labels bearing the production date of 6 April 2010 and the expiry date of 4 May 2010. The MEW said: "The products lacked compatibility with the standard specifications for the period of validity. Laboratory tests proved that the juice drinks contained fungus, leading the product to be subject to tight control across the country."
