Capri Sun recalls thousands of cases of wild cherry flavor
Kraft Heinz is recalling thousands of pouches of Capri Sun after some cleaning solution accidentally mixed with the juice on a production line.
The company said it’s recalling about 5,760 cases of Capri Sun Wild Cherry flavored juice blend. The “Best When Used By” date on the packages is June 25, 2023.
Kraft Heinz said the diluted cleaning solution is used on its food processing equipment. The company said it discovered that the solution had accidentally mixed with the juice after getting consumer complaints about the juice's taste.
The company said it is working with retailers to get the product out of circulation and off shelves. If you bought the affected Capri Sun, you shouldn't consume it and should return it to the store you bought it from for a refund.

More than 2 million infant swings, rockers recalled after baby's death
More than two million infant swings and 220,000 infant rockers are being recalled after reports that one baby died and another was hurt after getting tangled in hanging straps.
Pittsburgh-based 4moms is recalling about two million MamaRoo swings and 220,000 RockaRoo rockers in the U.S, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Monday.
The recall notice said restraint straps on the swing and rocker can hang down when not in use. Infants crawling under the seat can then get tangled in the straps and potentially be strangled.
4moms received two reports of infants getting caught in the hanging strap under the MamaRoo infant swing. One, a 10-month-old, died from asphyxiation. Another 10-month-old "suffered bruising to his neck before being rescued by a caregiver," the recall stated. No injuries or deaths were reported from the rocker.
According to the recall notice, the swings and rockers were sold at BuyBuy Baby and Target stores nationwide from January 2010 through August 2022 for between $160 and $250. They were also sold online on 4moms.com and Amazon.
