FDA warning about Fresh (Unpasturized) Fruit Juices

FDA Warns Consumers About Risks
Associated With Unpasteurized Juice

The Food and Drug Administration today reminded consumers of the dangers
associated with drinking unpasteurized fruit and vegetable juices. This
warning follows reports that the New York State Departments' of Health and
Agriculture and Markets, and local health departments in northern New York
are investigating a recent foodborne disease outbreak possibly linked to the
consumption of unpasteurized apple cider.

health risks associated with drinking juice or cider that has not been
treated in any way to kill harmful bacteria. Such products may be sold in
bottles or by the glass in supermarkets, at farmers markets, at roadside
stands, or in some juice bars. Untreated products that are sold in bottles
are generally displayed on ice or in refrigerated cases and are required to
carry the following warning statement on their label:
WARNING: This product has not been pasteurized and therefore, may contain
harmful bacteria that can cause serious illness in children, the elderly,
and persons
with weakened immune systems.
Untreated products that are fresh squeezed and sold by the glass are not
required to carry the warning label statement.
FDA advises consumers that, when in doubt, look for this warning statement
on bottled juice and ask if fresh squeezed juice has been treated in a way
to kill bacteria.
Consumers who do not wish to risk illness from consumption of raw juices
should not drink unpateurized juices. If you cannot determine if a juice has
been processed to destroy harmful bacteria, either don't drink it or bring
it to a boil in an open container to kill any harmful bacteria that may be
