Ocean Spray Voluntarily Recalls Limited Quantity of 8-ounce Greek Yogurt Covered Craisins® Dried Cranberries Which May Contain Undeclared Peanuts
LAKEVILLE, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Ocean Spray today announced it has taken the precautionary measure of
voluntarily recalling two production lots of Ocean Spray® Greek Yogurt
Covered Craisins® Dried Cranberries because the products may contain
yogurt covered peanuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity
to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction
if they consume these products.
The following 8-ounce pouches of Ocean Spray® Greek Yogurt Covered
Craisins® Dried Cranberries are part of this recall:
UPC # 31200 03719
Best By Dates Feb 10, 2015 and Feb 11, 2015
The products were distributed to retail stores in the following states:
Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas,
Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Misissippi,
Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, New York, North Carolina, Ohio,
Oklahoma, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin.
We received three consumer complaints that the product contained
peanuts, but no associated illnesses were reported.
The recalled products were produced by a co-packer in Chicago and no
other Ocean Spray® Greek Yogurt Covered Craisins® Dried Cranberries or
Ocean Spray® products are affected by the recall. Our co-packer has
reported some yogurt covered peanuts have been packaged along with Ocean
Spray® Greek Yogurt Covered Craisins® Dried Cranberries on two
production dates in February. Ocean Spray has worked with the co-packer
to identify the issue and we're confident that this is an isolated
incident and the problem has been corrected.
Although the packaging does contain a warning that the product is made
on equipment that also processes nuts, Ocean Spray issued the voluntary
recall out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of our
consumers. This recall affects a very small amount of our Ocean Spray®
Greek Yogurt Covered Craisins® Dried Cranberries and we have not
received any reports of allergic reactions.
If you purchased Ocean Spray® Greek Yogurt Covered Craisins® Dried
Cranberries with the above UPC code and sell by dates and have a concern
about peanut allergies, please save or take a picture of the UPC label
and best by date and contact the Ocean Spray Consumer Hotline at 1-800-662-3263,
weekdays 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, for a coupon
replacement. Please then destroy the product.
