Heinz Kraft expands recall; Tang, Arizona Tea now on list because of glass, metal

Following recalls in the U.S. and Canada, Heinz Kraft is now recalling 41 of its Arizona Tea, Tang, Country Time and Kool-Aid from the marketplace because of the potential of small glass or metal in the products.

The “best when used by” dates stretch into November of 2023, according to a company recall notice posted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The notice says the gas and metal pieces may have been introduced during the production of the products.

“The issue was first discovered during an internal review at the manufacturing facility. The company is actively working with retail partners and distributors to remove potentially impacted product from circulation,” according to a statement from Heinz Kraft.

“Consumers who purchased these items, listed below, should not consume the product and can either return it to the store where it was purchased, or discard it.” 

Consumers can contact Kraft Heinz at U.S. Consumer Relations at 855-713-9237 and Canada Consumer Relations at 855-268-1775.

To determine whether they have any of the products in their homes, they can use the following label information.
