Capri Sun Recall

The makers of Capri Sun, Kraft Heinz, have announced that they are recalling approximately 5,760 cases of Capri Sun Wild Cherry Flavored Juice Drink Blend beverages. This recall comes as a result of them possibly being contaminated with cleaning solution.


According to Kraft Heinz:

The voluntary recall comes after diluted cleaning solution, which is used on food processing equipment, was inadvertently introduced into a production line at one of our factories. Only the Wild Cherry flavored Capri Sun products with the case/package information below are affected.

The company discovered this issue after several complaints from customers about the taste of the product being a little off. Kraft Heinz says that they are actively working with retailers and distributors to remove the potentially impacted products from circulation.

The “Best When Used By” date on the products is June 25, 2023. Anyone who discovers that they have one of the recalled beverages should not drink it. If you have one of recalled drinks, you can return it to the store where you bought it. Consumers can also contact Kraft Heinz from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday, at 1-800-280-8252 to see if a product is part of the recall and to receive reimbursement.

The following Wild Cherry flavored Capri Sun products are subject to the recall:

10 Totally Wrong Assumptions We Had as Kids About How Things Work

I saw a question on Ask Reddit recently from user u/BlackbuckDeer that asked, what wrong assumptions we had as kids about how things work. I knew my answer instantly. When I was a kid, I thought the music played on the radio was done by the artists themselves sitting in the studio. I imagined a long line of artists twisting and turning their way down the hallways of the station waiting their turn to come on and play. I don't think that's what led to me being interested in a career in radio, but having now worked in the business for over 20 years and knowing how the songs get played, looking back on that thought makes me laugh a little bit. I figured if I had a thought like that, you probably did too. So, I put the question on Facebook. The responses were not only great, but when you think about it like a kid would, they all made perfect sense.
