Cherry Juice recall over Listeria worry

Empire Fruit Inc. of Othello, WA, is recalling “SCORE Montmorency Tart Cherry Juice” because of a potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The recalled product was distributed to customers in Auburn and Basin City, WA.

The recall was initiated after a routine inspection conducted by the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) revealed that two batches of SCORE Montmorency Tart Cherry Juice were not adequately pasteurized.

There is concern that consumers may have the juice in their homes because of its long shelf life. The recalled product was sold in 16-ounce plastic bottles with the best-by dates of 2/15/2022 and 2/16/2022.

As of the posting of this recall, there are no known illnesses associated with the recalled product.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled SCORE Montmorency Tart Cherry Juice are urged not to drink the product and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
