Honey may con­tain metal


A Taupo¯ honey mak­ing com­pany is re­call­ing a batch of its honey due to the pos­si­bil­ity of it con­tain­ing sharp metal.

Wester­velt Owhaoko Honey is ask­ing cus­tomers who bought Taku Honey brand Honey with Lemon 500g, with the batch num­ber WHA1190, to re­turn it to the re­tailer im­me­di­ately for a full re­fund.

The com­pany warns it should not be con­sumed ‘‘due to the pos­si­bil­ity of the prod­uct con­tain­ing sharp metal for­eign mat­ter’’, the re­call no­tice says.

The honey has been sold in spe­cialty food and sou­venir stores through­out New Zealand, as well as in 24 jars ex­ported to China. The re­call cov­ers 1500 jars.

In a no­tice posted to Taku Honey’s web­site, the com­pany said there had been no re­ports of ill­ness of in­jury.

How­ever, if any­one has con­sumed the honey and has any health con­cerns, they should seek med­i­cal ad­vice, the no­tice said.

The honey be­ing re­called was made on Septem­ber 14 last year, and has an ex­piry date of Septem­ber 13, 2020.
