CHICAGO — Approximately 5,760 cases of Capri Sun Wild Cherry beverages have been recalled because of possible contamination.

Kraft Heinz said in a statement that a cleaning solution used to treat food processing equipment was "inadvertently introduced into a production line at one of our factories." The issue was discovered after it received "several consumer complaints" about the products' taste.

The company didn't disclose how many total pouches have been recalled. However, each case has four cartons with 10 pouches, totaling about 230,000 individual pouches possibly being affected.

The Capri Sun being recalled have a "Best When Used By" date of June 25, 2023, on each 6.6-ounce pouch. Meanwhile, Kraft said it's "actively working" with retailers to remove the "potentially impacted product from circulation." It didn't say where the products were sold.

Customers that have the product can return them to the store. Kraft said people shouldn't drink them.

Earlier this week, about 13,000 pounds of frozen pizza made by Home Run Inn Frozen Foods was recalled because of potential metal contamination.

The pizza's meat topping "may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal," the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement Sunday.
