Capri Sun recall?(h)


Dominick Maciel, Reporter

What is behind the massive recall of Capri Suns? Here at the CCHS Oracle, we have found the hidden, disturbing reason behind it all.

During the testing of a new CapriSun flavor, hazardous chemicals seeped into other batches of CapriSuns that were shipped and sent to public stores all over the U.S. Many students at Cesar Chavez High School and other schools across the nation had to be taken to the hospital after reportedly drinking from CapriSuns. “I was very thirsty, so I drank a CapriSun, but I noticed it tasted chemical or had a metal taste to it. A few minutes later I felt my throat become itchy and swollen. I went to the health office and was rushed to the hospital immediately.” CCHS student Jenny Dong reported upon her return. Please be on the lookout for friends and family drinking CapriSuns that have some of these conditions.

  • Asphyxiation
  • Loss of taste
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Confusion
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Kidney failure

Kraft Heinz, the U.S distributor of CapriSuns, has released a statement recalling all CapriSun products that may have been tampered with. Apologizing for the mass array of sickness and saying it will never happen again. But can we trust that it will never happen again?
