When KraftHeinz looked into why some customers had a problem with the taste of their Capri Sun, the solution turned out to be cleaning solution and a not-food-in-your-food recall of 5,760 cases.

KraftHeinz’s recall announcement explained that “diluted cleaning solution, which is used on food processing equipment, was inadvertently introduced into a production line at one of our factories.”

All of the cases contain Capri Sun Wild Cherry Flavored Juice Drink Blend with a best by date of June 25, 2023. The code on the carton is 25JUN2023W followed by 01, 02 or 03; then a four-digit number between 0733 and 1000; and CT1404.

On the individual pouches, same code start followed by 01, 02, 03, 04, 09, 10; a four-digit number between 0733 and 0900; and L01 through L12.

If you have these Capri Suns, return them to the store for a full refund. Or, throw them in the garbage.
