Coffee Recall Updated By FDA

Coffee Recall Updated By FDA

( – On June 13, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) declared the Waco Bottling company’s voluntary recall of its TryBrewed Coffee Concentrate to be a Class III recall.

The company recalled the 6 oz/177 ml concentrate that comes in amber glass bottles, six in each case, due to a possible missing ingredient list and a missing nutrition label. Waco Bottling LLC, based in Texas, removed the product from the shelves on June 10.

Products that are not expected to have a negative impact on consumers’ health when exposed to them fall under the Class III recall.

A total of 321 cases, or 3,852 bottles, were recalled that were distributed through Amazon throughout the US. According to the FDA, the recall was necessary because the absence of an ingredient list could potentially expose consumers to allergies to specific ingredients. It also poses a problem for people trying to count calories or those who have restrictions on what they consume in their diet.

The FDA states that they are responsible for assuring the public that any food sold in the US is hygienic, safe, and labeled properly. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act are federal government laws that the FDA is responsible for maintaining. These laws apply to all foods grown and produced in the US, as well as any foods imported from other countries.

Often, a product missing the ingredient label is just human error. During the process of packaging the product, labels may be left off due to an accidental error. Additionally, the company may run out of preprinted labels before shipping the product, resulting in a missing label.

The FDA also has two other classifications for recalls that are in increasing order of severity. With Class II, the product may result in a temporary adverse health response that can be reversed through medical attention. The possibility of seriousness is remote.

For a Class I recall, there is the possibility of use causing a severe condition to the consumer’s health that may result in death.
