Minute Maid Products Are Recalled Due To Potential Contamination

They were distributed to eight states.

Thousands of cases of Minute Maid products have been recalled recently due to potential foreign object contamination. Three flavors are involved in the recall, which Minute Maid's parent company the Coca Cola Company announced voluntarily. Eight states received the affected products in local grocery stores, although in-store recalls have handled most of the problem at this point. Here's everything you should know before checking your pantry or fridge for these products.

Minute Maid products including Berry Punch, Strawberry Lemonade, and Fruit Punch flavors sold in 59-ounce cartons are a part of the recall. The concern is that foreign objects, specifically metal bolts and washers, may be contaminating some cartons. Approximately 7,475 cases of the juices have been recalled.

Affected products were distributed to Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New York, North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia, Maine, and New Jersey. The recall was first announced in November in stores where the impacted products were delivered, and a spokesperson for Coca Cola confirmed to People that the in-store recalls have essentially been completed, so there's little chance you might accidentally buy a contaminated carton in stores right now.

Due to Minute Maid's shelf life, there is a chance the contaminated products may still be in customers' pantries and homes, which is a main concern of the recall. Expiration dates for the batches in question extend into early 2022. An extensive list of product descriptions and codes of the potentially contaminated Minute Maid cartons can be found here for customers to reference when checking their pantries.
