Apple Cider Recall

I have been trying to lay off apple cider in the new year. I love it and it is good for you but the calories just kill you. This was, inadvertently of course, maybe a wise call. Certain production lots of Martinelli’s Gold Medal Sparkling Cider are being recalled in the Western United States.

Six-pack, shrink-bundled, 250 mL glass bottles are being recalled due to the possibility of a defective seal that could break when opening the bottle.

The affected cider being recalled have the following “Best By” dates:

  • 11 APR 2014
  • 12 APR 2014
  • 13 APR 2014
  • 14 APR 2014

These production codes can be found on the front, lower corner of the bottle label under the words “BEST BY:” in a gold colored box. They are for case UPC 4124499932, six-pack UPC 4124446256, and single bottle UPC 4124400256.

The 750 mL size of Martinelli’s Gold Medal Sparkling Cider is not affected and is not part of this recall.

Of course, by March I’ll probably be back to chugging apple cider like I was in 2010.
