RECALL Alert: GoGo squeeZ Potentially Contaminated with Food Product Residue



GoGo squeeZ is under fire since it announced this week that it was issuing a voluntary recall due to food product residue being found in two of its product pumps in its Traverse City factory. The discovery was made during an inspection by the Michigan State Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The specific product being recalled is its GoGo squeeZ Applesauce and until the food product residue issue gets fixed, the factory will not begin production. The CEO, Michel Larroche, left a lengthy post on Facebook apologizing for the recall stating, “…[O]ur team takes food safety matters very seriously, so in an abundance of caution, we are recalling products. We are so sorry that this happened. We have worked hard to earn your trust, and we are taking action to make sure we continue to deserve it. As a part of this commitment Bill Graham, our President, and I will be intimately involved in making the changes necessary to deliver on our promise.”

So far, there have been no reported cases of illness; however, if you purchased non-organic GoGo squeeZ Applesauce pouches with the Best Before Dates between December 4, 2015 and March 4, 2017 you should stop eating them and visit the GoGo squeeZ website to request a coupon voucher.

    From the link it looks like the recall includes best before dates up to March 4, 2017, not just 2016.

    Is it just the non organic apple sauce???

      Hi Katherine, yes, it is only the non-organic applesauce pouches that are being recalled. The organic ones are safe to consume.

    Hello, Ii have GoGo Squeez Apple in the green boxes. Do you know if this would be covered in the recall as well? Thank you!

    I wonder if the recall affects the ones we get in Canada? I think the ones we buy from Superstore are a “product of France” and not included. I’ll have to check when I get home!
