Small hair-like fragments were found in certain lots of Original Flavor Craisins Dried cranberries, triggering a voluntary recall, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and Ocean Spray Cranberries Inc. have announced. The affected produce comes in 5-ounce, 10-ounce and 48-ounce packages. The company emphasized that the hair-like metal fragments are extremely unlikely to cause any harm or injury to consumers, it added that this current recall is a precautionary measure.

Craisins are fresh cranberries that have been partially dehydrated, a process similar to making raisins from grapes. Craisins are popular for making salads, added to bread, cereals, or simply eaten on their own. The word craisin is a registered trademark of Ocean Spray Cranberries Inc. Other manufacturers who make partially dried cranberries are not allowed to use the term “craisins” for their products.

The FDA and the makers of craisins say they have received no reports of consumer complaints.
