Certain 5-oz, 10-oz, and 48-oz Craisins® Code Dates Affected
 


Ocean Spray today announced it has taken the precautionary measure of voluntarily recalling certain production lots of its Original Flavor Craisins® Dried Cranberries product in 5-ounce, 10-ounce and 48-ounce packages due to the possible presence of very small hair-like metal fragments that are unlikely to cause consumer injury. No reports of fragments in finished goods have been received and no injuries or adverse effects have been reported regarding these products to date. Ocean Spray issued the voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of our consumers.
This is a very small recall. The sweetened dried cranberries associated with the recall represent less than ¼ of 1% of the total pounds we produce annually.
No other Ocean Spray brand products are affected.
