The recalled applesauce pouches have a “Best Before Date” of 12/4/15-3/4/17 and a 5 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 included in the recall.
No illnesses associated with the recall have yet been reported. 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, Michigan production facility. It is possible the food product residue may have been incorporated into finished product.© Food Safety News
