All products are safe for consumption: Coca-Cola

All Coca-Cola products in China are safe for consumption, said the company when addressing the concerns over the tainted Fonterra dairy products on Monday.

The company reiterated that product priority and safety are always the top priorities.

Coca-Cola confirmed that use of the 25kg of the affected Fonterra whey protein was limited to only one batch of Minute Maid Pineapple Pulpy Milky - 20130305 DGP6, produced on March 5, 2013, and shipped to only three provinces - Yunnan (3273 cases), Guangxi (788 cases) and Guangdong (14967 cases).

Those products are safe for consumption, said the company, citing the ultra-high temperature (UHT) manufacturing process they use and the low acidity, which sanitizes the final products.

The company also said it is cooperating with the government and "actively" recalling products from the single batch to reassure consumers.

Following is the full notice from Coca-Cola China.

Notice for consumers and customers in Yunnan, Guangxi and Guangdong with Pineapple Pulpy Milky produced on March 5, 2013:

We are recalling only Pineapple Pulpy Milky with a March 5, 2013 production date from these three provinces. The production date is clearly marked on our packaging. Consumers and customers with the said product are advised to call the service hotline indicated on our packaging to facilitate pick up. We apologize for the inconvenience caused. To prevent such incidents from occurring again, we will strengthen our supervision of our suppliers.
