NEW YORK (MainStreet) — Ocean Spray is recalling certain Original Craisins products because the dried cranberries may contain small hair-like metal fragments, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
The products being recalled include 5-oz. Craisins with the UPC code 00293-000, 10-oz. Craisins with the codes 29456-000 and 29464-000, 48-oz. Craisins with the code 00678-318 and 10-pound bulk ingredient and foodservice Craisins with the UPC code 03477-000.
The full list of Best Buy Dates and UPC codes can be found on the FDA’s website.
The recall is precautionary, as Ocean Spray has not received any incident reports pertaining to the product and says the metal fragments are “unlikely to cause consumer injury.”
However, consumers are being asked to destroy the product, save the UPC label and best by date and contact Ocean Spray at 1-800-662-3263 for a coupon replacement.
Ocean Spray is now officially the third food manufacturer to issue a precautionary recall due to the presence of small metal fibers in 2011.
In September, Pepperidge Farm recalled sesame sticks due to concerns that they might have contained small pieces of wire, and just a few weeks later Kraft (Stock Quote: KFT) recalled its Velveeta Shells & Cheese microwaveable cups due to suspicions that there might be small, thin wire bristle pieces inside of them.
