Two recall announcements from Coca-Cola are making headlines this time around, affecting products like Minute-Maid, Sprite, and Coca-Cola.
Several days ago, Kraft Heinz announced that numerous brands of popular beverages contained traces of glass or metal.
Consumers of Country Time Lemonade, Tang, Arizona Tea, and Kool-Aid were urged to verify the supply they own was not affected by the recall.
As founded recently, a lot of these products may contain metals.
All consumers are advised to throw away any potentially contaminated Coke, Minute Maid, or Sprite products recalled, and stop drinking them.
Two separate recalls by Coca-Cola have now been implemented affecting different batches of drinks. Both recalls are about potential foreign material contamination.
Food Safety Network reported that Minute Maid recalled products possible to contain metal pieces.
Minute Maid drinks have been recalled by Coca-Cola due to possible contamination. The affected flavors include the following:
- Berry Punch – Date codes Jan0422 NP and Jan0522 NP, Batch 0010323455 and 0010259344 (recall F-0276-2022)
- Strawberry Lemonade – Date code: Jan0322 NP, Batch: 0010259346 (recall F-0277-2022)
- Fruit Punch – Date Code: JAN0522 NP Batch: 0010323454 (recall F-0278-2022)
The Minute Maid products that were recalled by Coca-Cola were distributed in eight states:
- New York
- North Carolina
- New Jersey
7,000 cases of these drinks might have been distributed by distributors in the affected states.
In fact, the juices are due for expiration next year, so buyers may still have them in their possession.
Stop drinking the recalled Minute Maid drinks right away if you still have them in your possession. Refunds or disposal of the drinks should be your next step.
Meanwhile, Sprite and Coca-Cola have been recalled too.
Coke recently recalled Minute Maid products, but it did so in late November for two of its products (Sprite and Coca-Cola).
Listed below are the recalled Coca-Cola and Sprite products:
- Coca-Cola 12 ounce cans: Date Code: AUG 1522 WM B
- Coca-Cola 12 ounce cans: Date Code: AUG 1522 WM C
- Sprite 12 ounce cans: Date Code: AUG 1522 WM B
Coca-Cola and Sprite products above expire in 2022, just like the Minute Maid products in the recent recall. Thus, buyers may still have these drinks in their possession which may already contain the unidentified contaminant.
The recalled cans of Coke and Sprite were distributed throughout the Southeast by Coca-Cola.
The Coca-Cola recall was announced by the Defense Commissary Agency to all stores.
Thus, lots of drinks have been taken off store shelves as a result.
Cans of Coca-Cola and Sprite that were recalled from customers should be returned or discarded.
There aren’t many times when a huge company like Coca-Cola recalls so many juices and sodas.
Keep a close eye out in your refrigerator, pantry, and medicine cabinet for any of these recalled dangerous products.
