You may want to rethink your child’s lunchbox snack options.GoGo SqueeZ, the popular squeezable applesauce for kids, is being voluntarily recalled after complaints of mold found inside the product packaging.The company recalled its product after "residue" was found in product pumps during a recent inspection by the Michigan State Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. This is the second time the product has been recalled in six months.
No illnesses have been reported at this time, but plenty of parents are sending in photos that allegedly show black mold inside the GoGo SqueeZ packaging and reporting that their child were “throwing up” or “feeling ill” shortly after consuming the packages.

“I deeply regret that I must let you know we are voluntarily recalling specific applesauce pouches that may not meet our quality standards,” GoGo SqueeZ founder Michel Larroche announced on the company’s Facebook page. “While it is possible the food product residue may have been incorporated into finished product, we test our applesauce extensively, and at this time, we have not seen evidence of this in our pouches.”
