Concerns about mold have caused a popular children’s treat, “GoGo Squeez” applesauce pouches, to be recalled from stores around the nation. According to GoGo Squeez, most of the pouches that are on the shelves are safe for consumption, but those with a ‘best before’ date between 6/30/16 and 7/26/16 should be avoided.
Gogo Squeez stated that there was an issue in recent production that lead to the development of a mold, similar to the type that can be found on decomposing fruit. When tested, an expert microbiologist from an independent lab determined that the mold poses no health risk.
Despite that fact, Gogo Squeez stated that they “know mold is gross and unpleasant to look at or taste,” and are issuing their recall in order to spare their customers a repulsive experience.
At Mold Inspection Illinois, we frequently receive questions revolving around the consumption of mold found in mold. Most of the time, eating moldy food will not harm you, but can occasionally make you ill if eaten in a large enough quantity. Simply contact your physician if you begin to feel sick, and throw out the remainder of the spoiled food.
