Several consumer complaints reporting an “off-taste” and “off-odor” after purchasing bottles of Sparkling Ice Cherry Limeade beverage, spurred Talking Rain to recall specific lot codes of the product.
“No other Sparkling Ice products are affected by this recall,” according to a recall notice posted on the Food and Drug Administration’s website.
Talking Rain of Preston, WA, reported that the Sparkling Ice Cherry Limeade product subject to recall was produced only at one of the company’s facilities.
The product comes in a 17 ounce clear plastic bottle under the name Sparkling Ice Cherry Limeade. The product is sold as a single item, as well as in multipacks of the affected product and in multipacks containing the recalled flavor and a variety of other unaffected flavors, the recall said.
All other flavor and products made by the company are not part of this recall.
The recalled beverages have various expiration dates ranging from December of 2018 through March of 2019. The product subject to recall can be identified by the following information that is displayed on the neck of the bottle:
|Bottle Lot Code||Expiration Date on Bottle||Expiration Date||Bottle UPC||Case/Variety Pack UPCs|
“Consumers who purchased the affected product are advised not to drink it and to call the Talking Rain customer center to receive a coupon to replace their purchase.”
