Just a few days ago, Ocean Spray, a popular manufacturer of dried fruit snacks in the United States, recalled their Original Flavor Craisins Dried Cranberries due to the presence of metal fragments in the food.
The products that were recalled included the five ounce, ten ounce and forty-eight ounce packages, as well as any bulk sweetened dried cranberries in the ten pound cases. According to a press release from November 25, 2011, the product was voluntarily recalled due to the "possible presence of very small hair-like metal fragments" inside.
Ocean Spray also noted that these fragments are unlikely to cause consumer injury, and no reports or complaints have been taken related to this recall.
If you have consumed any of these products and fallen ill as a result, call a Houston personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
