Walmart and Other Grocery Stores Sold This Potentially Dangerous Kid's Drink
It's the tail end of summer before school starts back up and that means long days for kids playing outside until the sun goes down. And when they're finally coming back in to grab something to drink—nothing looks more refreshing than a squeezable Capri Sun.
Only now there is a chance that one of those iconic pouches may be contaminated with cleaning fluid.
Kraft Heinz is recalling over 5,700 cases of Capri Sun Wild Cherry Flavored Juice Drink Blend pouches. The company has said that only one flavor is included in the drinks it suspects were tainted with the cleaning solution. It said it was first alerted to the issue when consumers started reporting that it tasted off.
Kraft released a statement about the incident saying that the cleaning solution is used on "food processing equipment," and "was inadvertently introduced into a production line at one of (the) factories."
No stores are listed by the company as having sold the contaminated pouches, but Walmart had the recall on its website.
If you're concerned you may have bought one of the affected Capri Sun products, Kraft has stated that it will have the "Best When Used By" date of 6/25/23 on cases, and a UPC of 876840040900. You can also visit the company's website for more information.
So far, there have not been any serious reactions reported regarding consuming the product. However, Kraft Heinz urges anyone who may have bought the Capri Sun drinks to throw them away immediately.
And it's not just popular juice pouches that grocery shoppers should be leery of. As of August 14, Home Run Inn Frozen Foods is recalled about 13,099 pounds of its Chicago's Premium Pizzeria Deluxe Sausage Classic Pizza due to metal pieces being found in the product—which is one extra topping you're not going to want to eat.
