GoGo squeeZ Recalls Applesauce Pouches Over Quality Concerns
Food residue may have made its way into the product
If you send your child to school with an applesauce pouch in her lunchbox, check your pantry. GoGo squeeZ is voluntarily recalling non-organic applesauce pouches according to a company statement.
"I deeply regret that I must let you know we are voluntarily recalling specific applesauce pouches that may not meet our quality standards," Michel Larroche, founder and CEO of GoGo squeeZ, in a letter posted on the company's Facebook page. "We found food product residue in two product pumps in one of our factories during an inspection by the Michigan State Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD)."

The affected pouches have a best before date of 12/4/15 through 3/4/17, a 5-digit production code beginning “US” followed by 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07 or 08 (you can find this code on the back of the pouch or on the bottom of the box), and “Product of USA” displayed under the Nutrition Facts Panel on the box.

The recall includes only non-organic pouches manufactured at the Traverse City facility. No other GoGo squeeZ products are affected.
No illnesses have been reported as a result of the issue. However, the company advises contacting a health care provider if you ingested a recalled product and are concerned about any potential health issues.
The company is asking customers to avoid consuming the recalled products. You can go on their site to request a product replacement voucher. If you have any questions, call GoGo squeeZ at 1-844-275-5841. See the company's list of FAQs for more information.
This is not the first time GoGo squeeZ has had trouble with their pouches. Last October, the company recalled fruit pouches when mold was found in some of them.
