Kraft Heinz issued a voluntary recall of more than 5,700 cartons of Wild Cherry flavored Capri Sun drinks that were contaminated with cleaning solution used on food processing equipment, the company announced in a statement Friday. 

Kraft Heinz announced the recall after it received several taste complaints from consumers, the statement said. The affected products are individual foil juices pouches that are sold in paperboard cartons, according to the statement. 

Customers can return their recalled drinks to the store they were purchased and be reimbursed. They can also call Kraft Heinz at 1-800-280-8252 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET to check if their case is among the contaminated, the statement said. 

“The affected cases were shipped to select states on the East Coast and Midwest, however, we can’t know where retailers shipped the product so we don’t want to be overly prescriptive on location,” a Kraft Heinz spokesperson told USA TODAY.
