Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Cranberry Juice Drink products are subject to this recall:

  • Ocean Spray branded Pink Lite Cranberry Juice Drinks, sold in boxes of six (6) – 5.5 ounce cans, with a batch/lot code of MH0030LPK4, a pack case UPC of 03120003782 4, an individual can UPC of 03120003682 7, GTIN Case identifiers of 0003120023682 1 or 0003120024682 0, a best-before date of 24JAN21 and distribution date codes of 21FEB2020 through 16APR20

Please consult the photograph above for details of the beverage’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the FDA, this recall was initiated after Ocean Spray Cranberries’ contract manufacturer revealed its production error, after receiving consumer complaints regarding an “off” odor in the identified batch/lot. Analysis by the food safety and quality personnel revealed that Sulfites were added to the identified batch/lot of product erroneously by the primary manufacturer. Consequently, Sulfites that are not part of the product formula were not declared on the label.
