Kraft Heinz recalls Kool-Aid mix that may contain metal, glass


Kraft Heinz is recalling batches of some Kool-Aid mix “due to the potential presence of foreign material, specifically very small pieces of metal or glass,” according to an alert issued by retailer Costco.

Costco issued the alert to customers who appear to have bought packages of 82.5oz Kool-Aid Tropical Punch Mix with “Best When Used By” dates of Aug. 31 and Sept. 1.

The metal and glass shards may have been accidentally mixed into the product during the manufacturing process, according to another notice issued by Stater Bros, a grocery store chain in Southern California.

“The company discovered the issue during an internal review at the manufacturing facility,” Stater Bros said.

“There have been no consumer complaints and no reports of illness or injury related to this issue to date.”

Kraft Heinz did not immediately return The Post’s request for comment.

In the alert issued by Costco, Kraft Heinz said customers can find the best-by date on the bottom of the punch mix’s container.

The company urged customers not to use the affected product and return it for a full refund to their nearest Costco.

“We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused,” Kraft Heinz said in the alert issued by Costco.
