- In the interest of consumer safety, Tropicana Products, Inc. has recalled
the 128 oz/gallon super size: Tropicana Pure Premium Calcium Orange Juice
in a plastic bottle with an expiration date of APR 15 printed on the neck of
the bottle. The recalled product was sold only to Sam’s Clubs. A limited
number of bottles of this product may contain a cleaning solution used in
the production process. The presence of this cleaning solution in the
product could cause mouth and/or stomach distress. The product has already
been removed from the sales floor. Consumers should return the 128 oz. Pure
Premium Calcium orange juice to the Sam’s Club where purchased for a refund.
About 500 bottles of 128 oz. Pure Premium Calcium orange juice were
inadvertently exposed to a cleaning solution used in the normal cleaning of
bottling equipment. In the interest of consumer safety, however, Tropicana
is voluntarily recalling the entire production run sold to Sam’s Club. No
other Tropicana products or sizes are affected nor are other retailers.
