Contaminated organic bananas recalled

There has been a recall of organically certified bananas from some Swedish stores, because they’ve been found to be carrying traces of cleaning fluids.

The discovery was made three weeks ago among the fruit at the ICA grocery chain.

Organic bananas are not supposed to have any chemical residues, and the Kiwa certification organization has recalled all organic bananas from ICA stores, and has imposed a ban on further deliveries.

The chemical in question is reportedly safe for human consumption, and the levels were very low. But it is still not supposed to be on products labeled as organic.
