GoGo squeeZ, a brand of applesauce manufactured by French company Materne, has announced a voluntary recall of its GoGo squeeZ applesauce pouches due to concerns regarding the quality of its products. An inspection performed by the Michigan State Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) discovered the company’s Traverse City, Mich., factory had “food product residue” left on two of its pumps.
The GoGo squeeZ recall affects applesauce pouch products with“Best Before Dates” from Dec. 4, 2015, through March 4, 2017. If you check the back of the recalled packages, they should say “Product of USA” and a five-character production code starting with “US” and followed by a 3-digit number beginning with 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07 or 08.
None of the company’s GoGo squeeZ Organic or YogurtZ products are included in this recall. There have also been no illnesses linked to the GoGo squeeZ recall.
“This recall only impacts non-organic products that were made in our Traverse City facility, and no others,” GoGo squeeZ CEO Michel Larroche said in a statement on the company’s website.
The company suffered a similar recall incident in 2015 when mold was discovered in some of its packages.
“We understand you may be losing patience with us,” Larroche told its consumers in his statement. “We have worked hard to earn your trust, and we are taking action to make sure we continue to deserve it.”
