U.S. retailers are making fruit drinks more appealing to consumers who want to try them, even if the fruits they’re packaged contain toxic ingredients.
In Canada, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has been warning consumers about the health risks of some of the most common fruits and vegetables sold in grocery stores, including blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, cantaloupes, grapes, cherries, guava, honeydew melons, kiwi, lemon, peaches, plums, strawberries, spinach, watermelon, and zucchini.
The CFIA said consumers should not buy these products because they contain potentially harmful ingredients.
“You should be aware of the health effects of all food and beverage products that you may be exposed to,” CFIA spokesperson Lauren Kostner said in an email.
“Not all foods are created equal and many can contain harmful ingredients.”
Here are some of Canada’s most popular fruit drinks.
Fruit Cans A can of Coca-Cola, a can of Coke, a small can of fruit juice, or a small container of canned fruit are all examples of cans.
But many grocery stores carry cans of fruits, such as apple, peach, and mangoes, as well as a small number of fruit-based beverages.
A small can is about the size of a grapefruit.
Fruit Juice A can or canister of fruit drinks is about as large as a grape or pineapple.
Many grocery stores sell fruit juices, which can be a lot cheaper than canned fruit.
Fruit Pods A fruit pod is about half the size and weight of a can, and contains fruit that has been dried in the sun for an extended period of time.
Fruit Canes A can that is about twice as long as a can can of canned fruits is often a fruit-only product, such a pomegranate, peach or mango.
Fruit Water Canes, fruit water cans, fruit juice cans, and fruit water canes can all be labeled as fruit-free.
They are made by combining fresh fruit with water.
The term “water” is usually used to indicate fruit juice or fruit water.
Fruit-Free Products In the U.K., fruit-water cans are more common than fruit-canned products, but they are also more commonly found in grocery store and health food stores.
There are also fruit- and fruit-containing juices that are also labeled fruit-sourced.
Many of these are fruit- or fruit-infused, but there is no clear rule as to what type of fruit is infused into the product.
There is a variety of different types of fruit juices and fruit juice canes available, including lemon, lime, apple, grape, pineapple, peach and peach juice.
Fruit Tarts A large, square-shaped, rectangular fruit tart can be used to fill a large serving or dessert cup.
Fruit Fruits like apples, bananas, and other fruit are generally considered fruit, but a variety are also known as fruit juices or fruit juice drinks.
The majority of fruit liquids sold in Canada come from fruit trees that have been grown in the United States or in other countries.
Fruit juices can be made from fruit tree pulp, fruit fruit juice concentrate, fruit extracts, or fruit or fruit tree products.
There’s also a range of other types of juices and canes.
Fruit Fruit and vegetable-based drinks are often labeled with the word “free.”
However, many people mistakenly think these beverages are actually free of fruit.
The label may not tell the whole story, as it’s often not clear what the ingredients in a drink are, whether they’re fruits, nuts, vegetables, or other substances, and whether the drink contains any other dangerous ingredients.
Fruit & Vegetable Pods Many grocery store fruits and vegetable products are made with fruit and vegetable extracts, which are often referred to as fruit extracts.
Some are labeled “free” fruit extracts or “free,” but some products are labeled with terms like “free of fruit.”
Fruit Bites In the United Kingdom, there is a law that prohibits the sale of food and drink that contains “fruit bites.”
However and even if a food or drink does contain fruit bites, it is not necessarily fruit-derived, nor is it necessarily a fruit that is intended to be eaten raw.
Fruit Cups Fruit cups are large plastic containers that are used to hold food and drinks that are meant to be served hot or cold.
The cup can be open or closed to keep the food and beverages cold.
Fruit Balls Fruit balls are small, flat, rectangular glass jars that are often used to pack up fruits, like strawberries, cantals, grapefruit, peach, or mangoes.
There may be different sizes of fruit balls available, but the biggest one
