Tomorrow is the first day of school in Milbank. You are probably busy gathering notebooks and crayons, looking for that missing shoe, and ushering the kids to bed early. If prepping a lunch for your kiddos tonight or in the wee hours of the morning, is also on your to-do list, pay special attention to the drinks you pack.
If you picked up a pack of Capri Sun juice drinks, take a closer look! Kraft Heinz, the company that produces Capri-Sun, announced a voluntary recall of approximately 5,760 cases of Capri Sun Wild Cherry Juice Drink Blend beverages due to contamination by a cleaning solution.
The voluntary recall comes after diluted cleaning solution, which is used on food processing equipment, was inadvertently introduced into a production line at one of our factories. Only the Wild Cherry flavored Capri Sun products with the case/package information below are affected. This recall only affects Capri Sun Wild Cherry Flavored Juice Drink Blend beverages made and sold in the United States.
The “Best When Used By” date on the products is June 25, 2023.
The issue was discovered after we received several consumer complaints about the taste of the affected product. The Company is actively working with retail partners and distributors to remove potentially impacted product from circulation.
Consumers who purchased these items should not consume the product and can return it to the store where it was purchased. Consumers can contact Kraft Heinz from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday, at 1-800-280-8252 to see if a product is part of the recall and to receive reimbursement.
Kraft Heinz is committed to upholding the highest safety and quality standards.
