In late November, Coca-Cola issued a recall on some Coca-Cola and Sprite cans. The expiration date for all the products is in 2022, which means buyers might still have the beverages stored somewhere. Customers who purchased these items should seek a refund or throw them away.

The Minute Maid recall is the most recent Coca-Cola company recall, but a similar recall was issued in late November. The Coca-Cola recall involved Coca-Cola and Sprite soda cans containing ‘undisclosed foreign matter,’ according to a Department of Defense All Food and Drug Activity message issued Nov. 24.

- Coca-Cola 12 ounce cans (Date Code: AUG 1522 WM C)

All recalled items expire in 2022, which means consumers may still own contaminated drinks. These products join a growing list of contamination occurring in the manufacturing process. Costco issued a recall on Nov. 12 for Kool-Aid Tropical Punch mix sold at specific Costco Business Centers and warehouse locations in Los Angeles and the Northwest.
Costco said the recall was due to the “potential presence of foreign material, specifically tiny pieces of metal or glass.”
