A recall has been issued for 5,760 cases of Capri Sun Wild Cherry due to possible contamination. Kraft Heinz identified a cleaning solution as the contaminant.
Details of the Capri Sun Recall
According to CNN, the company did not disclose the number of individual pouches to be covered in the recall, but based on the number of cases included with the recall it is estimated that roughly 230,000 pouches are affected.
In a statement, Kraft Heinz said a cleaning solution used to treat equipment at its food processing facilities was “inadvertently introduced into a production line” at one of the factories.” Unfortunately, the issue was not identified until the company received multiple consumer complaints about the products’ taste.
The chemicals used in the cleaning solution were not named in the company’s statement nor did the statement advise what possible adverse effects, if any, consumers should look out for.
