  • Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Organic Cranberry Juice Blend, 64oz - UPC: 77890-26689-2 with an Expiration Date of 11/5/2013.

These two products have been recalled because Wegmans supplier (Clement Pappas & Co.) sent a notification that an ingredient (apple juice concentrate) was found to have an unacceptable level of patulin (a by-product of mold).

The following health alert is from the FDA on April 12, 2013.

Winn-Dixie today announced an immediate voluntary recall of 64 FL OZ Winn-Dixie Organic 100% Apple Juice. The product is being recalled as a precaution because it could have levels of “patulin” that exceeds FDA limits. Winn-Dixie has received no reports of any issues associated with Winn-Dixie Organic 100% Apple Juice consumption. Patulin is a mycotoxin, a by-product of some molds that can grow in fruits and vegetables. The possibility of adverse health consequences resulting from this product is very remote. However, the FDA has determined that products made from concentrate with a patulin level of over 50 parts per billion are subject to a voluntary recall. Out of an abundance of caution for customers, Winn-Dixie is immediately recalling “64 FL OZ Winn-Dixie Organic 100% Apple Juice from Concentrate with Added Ingredient.” The recall is companywide for Winn-Dixie stores in the states of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.
