Gross! These fruit pouches seem to be recalled so often, I am glad I never purchased them for my kiddo. Now the GoGo squeeZ brand Apple pouch products have been recalled due to a mold growth. How disgusting is that?! This product was recalled just a couple days ago and the hazard is Class 3. If you have these sitting in your pantry, bring them back or throw them out. Please don't let your child ingest that, even if it isn't harmful. There is a website listed below where you can get a voucher to get new product as well.
Materne Canada Inc is the actual company that owns GoGo squeeZ, and they have voluntarily recalled some of their fruit pouch products due to a microbiological mold growth. While the growth mostly does damage to the quality, it is not harmful for your child. I still would not let them eat it now that you know, but if you didn't know before then don't panic. The symptoms are minor but should be monitored of course.
Consumers should definitely not consume the recalled products that have best before dates between 12/4/15 and 3/4/17. You can visit GoGoSqueez.comto request a replacement voucher.
What do you think could cause such a problem at a large quantity like this? It must have been a faulty ingredient I would imagine. I really hope that not too many children have already consumed these products. We are led to believe these are a healthy snack option for our little ones, but left right and center they seem to be recalled for mold growth. Right now the GoGo SqueeZ Facebook pageis lit up with comments from upset parents. Last year they had a recall for mold, so this is the second time. Have you lost your patience with this company now?
So if you have these products, what should you do? The recalled products should be disposed of or returned to wherever you bought them from. Then you can follow the link above and get a voucher to replace the products if you desire. The recall states that if an infant or child has consumed the products, to be on the look out for symptoms which may include an upset stomach, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. You can seek medical attention if you feel the need but it does not look like there will be any compensation for that.
This recall was actually triggered in the US but is Canada wide as well. Currently the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is doing an investigation which could lead to more of these products recalled so keep your eyes peeled.
Moosers, do you or anyone you know have kiddos that eat these GoGo squeeZ pouches?
