The company has now initiated a voluntary recall of the apricot kernels that have been sold in 1 kilogram bags.

Commenting on the recall, NSW Food Authority's chief executive officer Alan Coutts said, "Our primary concern is the sale of the product to the public as it is unsafe to eat the whole raw kernel. At the level of hydrocyanic acid detected in this product only a small number of apricot kernels would need to be consumed to reach potentially unsafe levels according to published toxicity data."
