The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has recalled the Liquid Fruit Red Grape Juice 330ml can with product code 27327 following a recall report received by the South Africa Pioneer Foods Company.

The South Africa Pioneer Foods Company reportedly confirmed that Liquid Fruit Red Grape Juice 330ml cans do not contain pieces of glass but Potassium Bitartrate crystals as independently verified.

Potassium Bitartrate is a naturally occurring substance in products made from grapes such as grape juice and wine. Crystallization of Potassium Bitartrate occurs under certain conditions such as low temperature and in this case occurred post-processing and canning. It is also more commonly known as cream of tartar when used as a cooking aid

The report reportedly said that given the presence of these crystals, consumers are advised not to consume the product. Ingestion of high quantities of Potassium Bitartrate (cream of tartar) can potentially result in life-threatening hyperkalemia
