• Kraft Heinz recalled thousands of Capri Sun drinks that were contaminated with cleaning solution.
  • Wild Cherry flavored Capri Suns with a best when used by date of June 25 2023 were recalled.
  • The contaminated pouches could cause an upset stomach if consumed, a Kraft Heinz spokesperson said. 

A batch of Capri Sun pouches containing a cleaning solution that could cause an upset stomach has been recalled after consumers complained about the drink's taste. 

Kraft Heinz, which manufactures the drink, said in a statement on Friday that an unnamed product that is used to clean processing equipment got "inadvertently" introduced into a batch of Wild Cherry flavored Capri Suns.

The affected products had a best when used by date of June 25, 2023.

"The risk of serious adverse health consequences is remote," but contaminated products shouldn't be consumed because they could have an "off-taste" and cause an upset stomach, a Kraft Heinz spokesperson told USA Today.

The affected drinks were sold as individual foil juice pouches in paperboard cartons, according to the press release. In total, 5,760 cases were affected, it said. Cases include four cartons of pouches, meaning thousands of drinks were potentially affected. 

Consumers should return any Capri Suns that fit the description to the store they purchased them from.

The company said consumers can contact Kraft Heinz from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST, Monday to Friday, on 1-800-280-8252 to check if a product is part of the recall and to get a refund.

The company said it was working with retail stores and distributors to "remove potentially impacted products." 

The Kraft Heinz spokesperson told USA today: "The affected cases were shipped to select states on the East Coast and Midwest, however, we can't know where retailers shipped the product so we don't want to be overly prescriptive on location."
