If you love those silver pouches of Capri Sun juice drinks or you pack them into your kiddos lunches, be aware that they were just recalled. Here’s what you need to know about the recall and how to check if you have the recalled Capri Sun in your kitchen.

What to Know About the Capri Sun Recall

Kraft Heinz announced a voluntary recall of nearly 6,000 cases of Capri Sun Wild Cherry Flavored Juice Drink beverage. Diluted cleaning solution, which is used on food processing equipment, was introduced into a production line in one of the factories causing the recall. The issue was discovered after a few customers called to complain about the taste of the product. Retailers are working diligently to remove the product from circulation.
