This picture of a molded Capri Sun drink circulating the Internet is beginning to show how stupid people really are. I understand the concern from us smarter folk but what everyone needs to realize is that everything has an expiration date. Milk, Cheese, cereal, bread and even those spandex shorts people shouldn’t wear.
Understanding the food label is an important job set for the CONSUMER. Which is YOU! Some food items, such as organic, homemade and otherwise “healthier” choices are NOT going to have preservatives to help with shelf life (shelf life is the time it takes for something to go bad one it is packaged for use).
Capri Sun juices have NO PRESERVATIVES. Hence their advertising of it being a “healthier” drink choice for kids. But don’t take that label for granted. This means these drinks have to be consumed in a timely manner.
My 2 questions to the mom who discovered the mold is “how long did you have those drinks before serving and did you keep them in a warm place?” Because everyone knows that mold grows in warm, dark places.
So people, examine your food products, use them accordingly and don’t get mad because you ate something after the expiration date and got sick.
