The Commission for Consumer Protection of the House of Representatives held on Wednesday (27), public hearing to hear the vice president of Unilever Brazil, Debs Newman, clarification on what steps were taken by Unilever complaint regarding the presence of toxic substances in containers of juices brand soy Ades.

Were also invited to the hearing the CEO of the National Agency for Sanitary Surveillance (ANVISA), Brás Aparecido Dirceu Barbano, and national secretary of the Consumer, Juliana Pereira da Silva.

This month, a boy of seven years underwent examinations at the Institute of Forensic Science (IPC) of João Pessoa (PB), after her mother press charges claiming he suffered burns in the mouth after ingestion of grape juice brand Ades .

In October last year, a picture of a fungus found by a couple in a package of Ades was posted on social networking site Facebook and received thousands of shares. Netizens also published criticism, complaints and photo reproductions on the official Unilever Brazil - manufacturer of soy beverage.

The situation seems more serious than reported by the multinational, which in a statement said that the contents of 96 boxes of 1.5 liters of apple Ades, AGB Lot 25, was unfit for consumption. However, even with this information Anvisa decided to suspend lots of juices of all flavors, says Congressman Francisco das Chagas (PT-SP), author of the request for the hearing. This is a fact which I consider very serious, because, according to the report twelve people have received medical attention after drinking apple juice content changed, he adds.

The meeting will be held at Plenary 8, at 10 am.
