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.
