Anvisa suspends the sale of lots of paçoca because it contains carcinogenic substances
The National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) suspended, on Wednesday (17), the commercialization and distribution of seven lots of paix of the brand Dicel. According to the agency, the products exceed the permitted limit of aflatoxins, toxic substances produced by fungi that can cause cancer.
The measure is valid for all national territory and applies to lots 0042, 0029, 0040, 0026, 0023, 0092 and 0024 of the Peanut Jam. The manufacturer, WK Produtos Alimentícios Ltda, identified the problem and sent a statement announcing the voluntary recall of the product.
Aflatoxins are toxic and carcinogenic substances and, therefore, non-specification products can not be consumed by the population. This is the second time that the company has products withdrawn from the market because of the presence of carcinogenic substance. In March, Anvisa interdicted the sale of lot 0027 of the paçoca for the same problem, high aflatoxin content.
