Some Craisins Recalled Due to Metal Fragments

Ocean Spray on Saturday announced a precautionary recall of certain production lots of its Original Flavor Craisins® Dried Cranberries in 5-ounce, 10-ounce and 48-ounce packages, as well as bulk sweetened dried cranberries in 10-pound packages, because they might contain very small hair-like metal fragments.

    Most thoughtful, respectful recall in memory. You don’t even have to mail it in! Ocean Spray always is a class act. Even though this does not affect us (We checked our 48 ounce package.), we greatly appreciate this. It increased our confidence in using Ocean Spray products.

    I ran to get my “Craisins” to check the “best by” date, but I’m okay. I have the 6 oz. package, plus I live in the Southeast and none of the numbers match. Thank you, Ocean Spray, for your timely notification – I love your products! Now, I’m going to eat my “Craisins”!
