A popular brand of applesauce for children has been recalled because food product residue was found in product pumps during an inspection.
GoGo squeeZ Founder and CEO Michel Larroche announced the recall on the product's Facebook page.
Larroche said, "I deeply regret that I must let you know we are voluntarily recalling specific applesauce pouches that may not meet our quality standards."
The problem was found during an inspection by the Michigan State Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD). No illnesses had been reported from the issue.
Larroche's post continued," While it is possible the food product residue may have been incorporated into finished product, we test our applesauce extensively, and at this time, we have not seen evidence of this in our pouches."
