FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - December 2, 2011 - Ocean Spray today added five additional Best By code dates to its voluntary recall issued November 25, 2011 of a limited number of production lots of its Original Flavor Craisins® Dried Cranberries in 5-ounce, 10-ounce and 48-ounce packages in the western U.S. only. Ocean Spray took this precautionary measure due to the possible presence of very small hair-like metal fragments that are unlikely to cause consumer injury.

The additional five recalled lots were only shipped to retailers in the following eight western U.S. states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington.

No international markets are affected by this expanded recall.

To date, the company has not received any reports of consumer complaints of metal fragments in product subject to this expanded recall. No injuries or adverse effects have been reported regarding these products to date. Ocean Spray issued the voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of our consumers.

No other Ocean Spray brand products are affected.
