    Well that clears that one up.

    Hope you find some answers!

    I guess if you contacted prima directly and explained you thought the product had been contaminated, they'd probably be quite interested and conduct testing themselves.

    Contrary to CSI, labs can't really put it in a machine and out comes the list of chemicals. I have a chemistry degree and unless you suspect what the contamination is you are finding a needle in a haystack. If you have exposed the substance to air it can change the chemical make up, refrigeration etc all effect the preservation of the sample. Contacting them directly is by far the best option especially in case they need to do a recall.

    Bummer, I love all that sciency stuff lol I really thought they could tell me what the heck we drank to ease my mind. I have contacted the supermarket and Berri. I won't hear from Berri until Monday but Woolworths know, they aren't doing a recall unless someone else calls saying the same thing :/

    Yeah it was. Very weird. I'm never buying juice boxes again. I will only buy the pop top type ones with clear packaging.

    Im an analytical chemist and, while I test water quality it is alomost similar.
    In most cases if you were to ring a testing company and explain the taste that you found they would consult with their chemists and have a FAIRLY good idea of what properties to test for.
