Due to a potential cleaning solution contamination, more than 5,700 cases of Capri Sun’s wild cherry-flavored juice pouches are being voluntarily recalled, according to a Monday Kraft Heinz statement.
In a statement, Kraft Heinz explained that accidentally introducing a diluted cleaning solution—used on food processing equipment—into a production line at one of its factories harmed just certain wild cherry-flavored Capri Sun products marketed in the US. There is no chance of a significant health hazard, according to a spokeswoman for the brand’s parent firm Capri Sun AG, who talked to CBS News. After receiving “many consumer complaints” regarding the flavor, Kraft Heinz claimed to have found the issue.
Refunding the products is in progress
Consumers who purchased these items should not use them and instead return them to the seller. To find out if a product is included in the recall and to request a refund, customers can call Kraft Heinz at 800-280-8252 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday. Pictures of the products were not included in the recall report by the manufacturer.
Product recalling around North America
A number of other recalls, including one involving King’s Hawaiian pretzel products and one involving millions of baby swings and rockers, were issued on Monday.
Pittsburgh-based Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Monday that 4moms is recalling roughly 2 million MamaRoo swings and 220,000 RockaRoo rockers in the United States following complaints that one infant died and another was injured after becoming caught in hanging straps. In Canada, an additional 70,000 goods are being recalled.
The swings and rockers were sold for between $160 and $250 at BuyBuy Baby and Target locations nationwide between January 2010 and August 2022, according to the recall notice. Amazon and 4moms.com both offered them for sale online.
For its pretzel products, King’s Hawaiian has issued a recall due to worries about potential bacterial contamination in one of the ingredients given by the supplier. All King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Slider Buns, Pretzel Hamburger Buns, and Pretzel Bites items are included in the recall. The company claims that the action is being taken as a precaution when Lyons Magnus recalled an ingredient used in pretzel products due to potential contamination.
None of the other King’s Hawaiian products is affected by the recall. The business stated that after all ingredients have been deemed safe and all of the existing product has been discarded, it wants to resume producing pretzel goods.
Capri Sun’s previous product scandal
It’s not the first time Capri Sun’s juice drink-related problems have made the news. In 2018, a father from Indiana reported finding mold floating in his child’s strawberry-kiwi Capri Sun. At the time, the business informed TODAY that the mold was an “isolated” instance that had developed following the perforation of the pouch. Previously, the business advised checking each pouch for leaks by gently squeezing it; leaks might cause mould to grow. Any pouches with leaks or holes in them need to be thrown away right away.
Capri Sun’s statement on the issue
According to a statement given to CBS News by Capri Sun AG, the company’s goods marketed in other nations are produced by a different company and are unaffected by the recall. “At Capri-Sun, we’re committed, as always to a high standard of quality, as the safety of our consumers is paramount. If anyone does have concerns over their product, we encourage them to contact the relevant customer support line in their country of purchase, which can be found on the back of their Capri-Sun products,” the business stated.
