Canadian officials announced Friday the recall of Evive brand Immunity Super Functional Smoothie due to the risk of cyanide poisoning.
The company says they are recalling because this smoothie brand contains raw elderberries. Raw elderberries naturally contain cyanogenic glycosides, which can release cyanide after being eaten. The human body can eliminate small amounts of cyanide, but larger amounts can result in cyanide poisoning, which could lead to death.
Symptoms of cyanide poisoning include weakness and confusion, anxiety, restlessness, headache, nausea, difficulty breathing and shortness of breath, loss of consciousness, seizures and cardiac arrest.
The recalled product has been sold online.
