Children’s Applesauce Brand Recalled Over Mold
GoGo squeeZ, the maker of a line of squeezable, preservative-free fruit snacks for children, has voluntarily recalled its AppleApple applesauce pouches after a small sample of the products tested positive for mold.
“An independent lab tested the mold, and an expert microbiologist determined that it poses no known health risk,” CEO Michael Larroche announced in a statement on the company’s website.
“However, we know mold is gross and unpleasant to look at or taste, and this is simply not the kind of experience we want you to have. As a consequence, we took every step to fully understand and fix the problem. We are completely confident that we are once again meeting our high quality standards. Additionally, we have been working closely with the FDA on our actions and we will keep you updated with any new information.”
Although the majority of affected products were identified before distribution, a small percentage of products were made available to consumers. As such, AppleApple products with a “best before date” between June 30, 2016 and July 26, 2016, have been recalled from store shelves.
