Materne North America Corp. is voluntarily recalling specific packages of GoGo squeeZ applesauce pouches due to potential adulteration from food product residue. The recalled applesauce pouches have a Best Before Date of “12/4/15” to “3/4/17” and a five digit production code beginning “US” followed by 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07 or 08, which consumers can identify on the back of the pouch or on the bottom of the box, and “Product of USA” displayed under the Nutrition Facts Panel on the box. Any products labeled as organic are not impacted by the recall.
The food product residue was noted during a routine inspection by the Michigan State Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD), which revealed its presence in two product pumps at the Traverse City, Mich. production facility. It is possible the food product residue may have been incorporated into finished product.
Production of the product mentioned above has been suspended while MNA and MDARD officials continue their investigation as to the source of the problem.
