The maker of a popular brand of children’s applesauce has issued a voluntary recall after mold was found in some of its products earlier this year.
GoGo squeeZ is recalling applesauce with best-by dates between June 30, 2016, and July 26, 2016. The company said a production issue could cause the applesauce pouches to harbor fruit mold.
The company’s CEO, Michael Larroche, said the mold poses no health risk to people who eat it, but noted that the affected applesauce could have an unpleasant look or taste.
"As a consequence, we took every step to fully understand and fix the problem," Larroche said. "We are completely confident that we are once again meeting our high quality standards. Additionally, we have been working closely with the FDA on our actions, and we will keep you updated with any new information."
The affected products were shipped nationwide.
Larroche said because of the voluntary recall, it may be harder to find GoGo squeeZ applesauce in the coming weeks.
The company is directing anyone who may have purchased the affected applesauce to www.gogosqueez.com/announcement.
