Coca-Cola has announced a handful of recalls, which impact Coca-Cola, Minute Maid and Sprite products. According to the Food Safety Network, the items were recalled because they could contain foreign metal objects.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, Coca-Cola has recalled three Minute Maid products that were distributed in several states, including New York, North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maine and New Jersey.
The Minute Maid products are as follows:
- Berry Punch – Date codes Jan0422 NP and Jan0522 NP, Batch 0010323455 and 0010259344 (recall F-0276-2022)
Strawberry Lemonade – Date code: Jan0322 NP, Batch: 0010259346 (recall F-0277-2022)
Fruit Punch – Date Code: JAN0522 NP Batch: 0010323454 (recall F-0278-2022)
In addition, Coca-Cola issued a recall on select Coca-Cola and Sprite cans in November. The Department of Defense All Food and Drug Activity reports that those cans were reportedly distributed in the south.
The Coca-Cola and Sprite products are as follows:
- Coca-Cola 12 ounce cans: Date Code: AUG 1522 WM B
Coca-Cola 12 ounce cans: Date Code: AUG 1522 WM C
Sprite 12 ounce cans: Date Code: AUG 1522 WM B
The Defense Commissary Agency informed all stores of the Coca-Cola recall, so the drinks from those lots were removed from impacted stores. But, for customers who already purchased them, the expiration date for all the recalled items is in 2022, making it more likely that buyers could have them at home. Customers who purchased these items should throw them away or get a refund.
