Capri Sun Wild Cherry Recall Issued After Cleaning Solution Discovered in Drink Pouches

The manufacturer has not identified the cleaning solution that led to the Capri Sun Wild Cherry Recall, and no details have been released about the nature of illnesses experienced and long-term health risks

Following a number of consumer complaints, a Capri Sun recall has been issued for “Wild Cherry” flavor, after the manufacturer acknowledged that the popular juice drink pouches may contain a cleaning solution.

The Capri Sun Wild Cherry recall was announced by Kraft Heinz on August 12, but the manufacturer has not provided information about the source of the contamination or potential health risks the drinks may pose, especially among young children.

The company indicates that the the Capri Sun drinks were contaminated with a cleaning solution used on food processing equipment, which got into the product on the production line in one factory. However, the problems were not discovered until several consumers complained about a “foul” tasting Capri Sun, including several reports involving severe vomiting and diarrhea after drinking the “juice”.

Some recalled products may still be on store shelves, and parents are outraged that the manufacturer has not been transparent about exactly what chemicals may be in the drinks, and what illnesses or long-term health risks may be caused.
