Recall Alert! Your Applesauce Pouches May Contain Mold
Popular applesauce maker GoGo squeeZ has voluntarily recalled certain products after a recent production issue that led to mold developing in pouches.
The company has said the mold that has affected their products is the type that can form on fruit and poses no potential health risk if consumed. "However, we know mold is gross and unpleasant to look at or taste, and this is simply not the kind of experience we want you to have," founder and CEO Michel Larroche wrote on the company's site.
The recall includes all individual pouches and cartons of pouches produced in the United States with a "Best Before Date" between 6/30/2016 and 7/26/2016. Although these are the dates specified by GoGo squeeZ, it's important for consumers to thoroughly check products before consumption.
The number of affected pouches has not been disclosed.

"As a result of this action, during the coming weeks, it may be a bit more difficult to find GoGo squeeZ products on your store shelves as we work to get back in stock the high quality products you know and deserve," Larroche said.
