Certain packages of Ocean Spray Craisins have been recalled due to possible contamination by small, hair-like metal fragments.
The popular dried cranberries are distributed throughout Alaska, but the state Department of Environmental Conservation reports no illnesses or adverse reactions.
The recall covers 5 oz, 10 oz, 48 oz bags, as well as 10 pound bulk packages with “Best by” dates between October 27th, 2012 and November 11, 2012. The “Best by” date will be followed by the letter M on affected packages. The UPC number for the 5 oz packages is 00293-000; for the 10 oz packages it’s 29456-000 and 29464-000; for the 48 oz packages it’s 00678-318; and for the bulk packages it’s 03477-000.
Consumers who have purchased any recalled Craisins are urged to throw them away, but save the UPC label and “Best by” date, and contact the Ocean Spray Consumer Hotline at 1-800-662-3263 for a coupon replacement.
