(WTNH) — The CEO of GoGo squeeZ applesauce pouches has announced that the company has issued a recall after mold was found in a number of pouches.

Michel Larroche says that while the company was able to catch most of the affected products before they got to store shelves, they want make sure that none of the affected pouches make their way into your home.

“An independent lab tested the mold, and an expert microbiologist determined that it poses no known health risk. However, we know mold is gross and unpleasant to look at or taste, and this is simply not the kind of experience we want you to have,” said Larroche in a statement. “As a consequence, we took every step to fully understand and fix the problem. We are completely confident that we are once again meeting our high quality standards. Additionally, we have been working closely with the FDA on our actions and we will keep you updated with any new information.”

The products being recalled have a “best before date” between June 30 and July 26, 2016.

Larroche says the no other GoGO squeeZ products are impacted by the recall.
