Ocean Spray Voluntarily Recalls Some Packages of "Craisins"

Ocean Spray Voluntarily Recalls Some Packages of "Craisins" 29373
Ocean Spray has issued a voluntary recall of a limited quantity of Craisins, the dried cranberry snack popular with adults and children alike, because there is a chance the food is contaminated with small hair-like fragments of metal.  In a statement, the company said the fragments are "unlikely to cause consumer injury," and no injuries, reactions, or adverse affects have been reported by customers so far.  Said the company, "Ocean Spray issued the voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of our consumers."
