ST. PAUL - The Minnesota Department of Agriculture issued a consumer advisory on Friday, Oct. 19, for apple cider produced and distributed by Sunnyside Orchards of Pennock.
The Sunnyside Orchards Apple Cider produced by the company was inadequately processed and stored at improper temperatures which would allow for harmful bacteria to grow. All cider produced since August 31, 2018 is affected. The cider was sold in both gallon and half-gallon containers. A photo of the label is provided.
There have been no reports of illness associated with these products.
The cider was distributed to several coffee shops in Willmar as well as Dassel Hillside Farm, Youth for Christ in Willmar and Stacy's Nursery in Willmar.
If you have the affected Sunnyside Orchards Apple Cider in your home, throw it away and do not drink it. If you have experienced gastrointestinal symptoms like vomiting or diarrhea after consuming the affected cider, please contact your health care professional.
