Thousands of cases of Capri Sun Wild Cherry Flavored Juice Drink Blend have been recalled due to a possible cleaning product contamination, Kraft Heinz announced Friday
The company, which distributes the juice, said the voluntary recall affects approximately 5,760 cases of the beverage with a "Best When Used By" date of June 25, 2023.
Diluted cleaning solution, used on food processing equipment, inadvertently entered a production line at a factory producing Capri Sun. The issue was discovered following several consumer complaints about the taste of contaminated juice.
Cases of Wild Cherry Capri Sun are made up of four cartons with 10 pouches each, so more than 230,000 individual juice pouches could have been affected, NBC reported.
Kraft Heinz is currently working with retail partners and distributors to remove impacted juice from shelves.
Consumers can contact Kraft Heinz at 1-800-280-8252 to determine whether a product is part of the recall and to receive reimbursement. Those who purchased the affected beverage are advised not to drink it and to return it to the store where it was purchased.
