The Coca-Cola Company is recalling a range of Minute Maid products, according to Food Safety News. The reason for the recall is the “potential of foreign objects, specifically metal bolts or washers.” Company spokesperson Ann L. Moore said the recall is voluntary, and it applies to a limited quantity of refrigerated Minute Maid Berry Punch, Strawberry Lemonade, and Fruit Punch sold in 59-ounce cartons.

The voluntary recall began on Nov. 10 in stores that were affected. The expiration dates on the products range into 2022, so they might still be on some store shelves—in addition to inside your fridge. Keep an eye out on your next grocery trip to avoid inadvertently purchasing any potentially contaminated products that were not pulled from shelves.

Fortunately, per USA Today, Coca-Cola rep Moore explained that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classified the recall as “Class II,” meaning the products could potentially cause “temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences,” but the risk of serious negative health effects was unlikely. Still, the FDA says, consumers should use caution. So check those shelves—both at home and at the grocery store—to make sure you avoid consuming any potentially contaminated Coca-Cola products. If you have these drinks at home, toss them out right away out of an abundance of caution.
