Kraft Heinz issued a voluntary recall of its Capri Sun Wild Cherry Flavored Juice Drink, according to the company’s statement on Aug. 12.
Select batches of the popular kids’ beverage are being recalled due to a possible cleaning solution contamination in one of Kraft Heinz’s factories.
“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,” Kraft Heinz said in the statement.
Approximately 5,760 Capri Sun Wild Cherry Flavored Juice Drink cases may have been tainted. The potentially contaminated product has a “Best When Used By” date of June 25, 2023.
“The Company is actively working with retail partners and distributors to remove potentially impacted product from circulation,” Kraft Heinz said.
The issue was discovered when Kraft Heinz received complaints from consumers about the taste of the affected product.
Consumers who bought the recalled drinks can return them to the retailer where they were purchased to receive reimbursement. Consumers can also contact Kraft Heinz to determine if their case is among the affected, the statement read.
