Health Canada Warns Against Unpasteurized Fruit Juices

Health Canada has issued an advisory to parents not to give unpasteurized apple juice or other unpasteurized products including cider, fruit juices and raw milk to their children. Even the elderly and people with weak immune systems are advised not to consume such products.

The reason is that such products contain Salmonella and E. coli, which are harmful bacteria and can prove fatal. But Health Canada also said that a majority of juice n the country was safe and pasteurized (treated with heat or ultraviolet light). "Unpasteurized juice products can be found at some farmer's markets, orchards, and grocery stores," it added.
