KINGSTON, Jamaica – GraceKennedy is reporting that its operations have not been impacted by the recall of the Capri Sun Wild Cherry flavoured juice blend in the United States.

In a release on Tuesday, August 16, the company said the recall by Kraft-Heinz in the United States is only happening in the US and there is "no risk of a serious health issue."

"Capri-Sun is distributed in Jamaica by GraceKennedy (GK) Foods through its World Brands Services (WBS) division, and in the Caribbean through its subsidiary Grace Foods Latin America and the Caribbean (LACA). Capri-Sun products distributed through WBS and Grace Foods LACA are manufactured in Jamaica by GK Foods, and are not impacted by the US recall in any way," the release read.
