For once, our constant access to information and the internet is actually potentially a life-saver. If it weren’t for the ease of global communication through the web, I wouldn’t have found out about what I’m about to share with you now. According to the FDA, Coca-Cola has issued a recall on three different “Minute Maid” products, which were distributed throughout the states of:Pennsylvania Connecticut New YorkNorth CarolinaMarylandVirginiaMaineand New JerseyHere is the more specific information about the batch numbers that this recall applies to:

  • Berry Punch – Date codes Jan0422 NP and Jan0522 NP, Batch 0010323455 and 0010259344 (recall F-0276-2022)
  • Strawberry Lemonade – Date code: Jan0322 NP, Batch: 0010259346 (recall F-0277-2022)
  • Fruit Punch – Date Code: JAN0522 NP Batch: 0010323454 (recall F-0278-2022)

Just last month, Coca-Cola also issued a recall on a few varieties of their sodas:

  • Coca-Cola 12 ounce cans: Date Code: AUG 1522 WM B
  • Coca-Cola 12 ounce cans: Date Code: AUG 1522 WM C
  • Sprite 12 ounce cans: Date Code: AUG 1522 WM B

The expiration date for all the products is in 2022, so definitely go through any Coca-Cola products you’ve purchased recently and get rid of the ones that match up with these recalls. You can seek a refund or just throw them out, but either way, you want them out of your house as soon as possible.

We know that soda always has the potential to be unhealthy, but if you’re wondering what the reason behind this particular set of recalls is, it is explained here:

The Coca Cola Company is recalling certain Minute Maid products because of the potential of foreign objects, specifically metal bolts or washers.”Yikes! Had you heard about this yet? Do you live in one of these states and are you worried about your Coca-Cola consumption? If you have some of these batches, would you just throw them out or try to get a refund?
