Check your pantries before packing this week's lunches for the kids — GoGo squeeZ is voluntarily recalling some of its applesauce pouches after the quality was rendered poor due to food product residue.
"We found food product residue in two product pumps in one of our factories during an inspection by the Michigan State Department of Agriculture and Rural Development . . . 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," says the report. No illnesses have been reported in connection to this issue, but GoGo squeeZ is being cautious and removing affected pouches from shelves.
The recalled applesauce pouches have a "best before" date between Dec. 4, 2015, and March 4, 2017 — and a five-digit production code beginning "US," followed by 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, or 08 — which consumers can identify on the back of the pouch or the bottom of the box. Check your home stash to see if any of your pouches are affected, and either call the company at 1-844-275-5841 or visit their website to request a replacement voucher.
