St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Kraft Heinz has issued an alert, recalling thousands of pouches of Capri Sun juices.
Kraft Heinz co-headquartered in Pittsburgh and Chicago, disseminated a statement on Friday, August 12, revealing that the company is working assiduously with retailers to remove from circulation a total of 5,760 Capri Sun Wild Cherry flavored juice pouches.
The company informed that accidentally, a diluted cleaning solution that is usually used on its food processing equipment contaminated the Capri Sun juices. This was only discovered after several consumers complained of an unusual taste in the Capri Suns. The affected Caprisun packages are marked “Best when used by June 25, 2023.”
WINN FM contacted Dr. Marcus Natta, Science and Research Manager at the St. Kitts and Nevis Bureau of Standards on Tuesday morning, (August 16). He confirmed that Capri Suns on a specific product line are being recalled, but said that he does not believe that the Capri Suns are in circulation in St. Kitts and Nevis. He also informed that in cases where products are being recalled, the Bureau of Standards in the countries that are likely to be affected will receive an official alert. Natta said the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis was not issued an alert for a recall on Capri Suns. He added, however, that they at the Bureau of Standards will still pay attention to the situation as it unfolds.
