FreshFruitPortal.com has retracted an article published on Feb. 4 regarding the risk of transmission of Covid-19 via frozen foods. Having reviewed the article, we concluded that the information did not comply with our editorial standards.
The article cited information originally published on the website China.org.cn, which claimed that multiple studies had found that frozen products have been linked to outbreaks of Covid-19.
However, most international food safety organizations state that there is no evidence of Covid-19 transmission through frozen foods, and we have been unable to independently verify the validity of the studies mentioned in the article.
The decision was therefore taken to remove the article from our website. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
