Mold Found In Capri Sun Pouches – Kraft Says It’s Not A Big Deal. When a five-year-old Hawaiian girl took a sip of her Capri Sun she spit it out immediately saying it tasted funny. Her uncle, James Stoddard, cut the pouch open to see what it could have been. The unexpired Capri Sun had floating bits of brown mold in it. “I was just grossed out, disgusted by it,” Stoddard told Hawaiian News Now. “You never think anything of it until it hits this close to home, and when it hits home that’s when you actually think, ‘Oh my god, I don’t want to buy caprice on products anymore.'”
Kraft, who is the parent company of Capri Sun, already had the disclaimer up about the issue due to the fact it has been an ongoing problem. The disclaimer reads: “Although it is extremely rare, because Capri Sun does not contain any artificial preservatives, something many moms appreciate, it is possible for food mold to grow inside a pouch that has been punctured and is exposed to air. What usually forms is a common food mold similar to what might grow on fruit or bread. In the past, experts have told us there are no significant or long-term health effects associated with consuming this type of mold, though we understand how bad of an experience it can be for a child to drink.”
Since this report, discussions of the issue on social media seem to be escalating due to the number of reported cases in the local news. Some customers even claim they have found worms in their Capri Sun pouches, Kraft insists it is probably just slimy mold. Life Science reported that five different types of mold have been identified in Capri Sun pouches. If you are worried about finding mold in your Capri Suns, Kraft suggests that you squeeze the pouches to ensure there are no small holes or punctures before enjoying them.
