In a press statement, Winn-Dixie Stores Inc, in cooperation with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), announced that it has issued a voluntary recall on Sunrise Assorted Flavor Gummy Bears sold in the self-serve bulk of specific stores in Jacksonville, Miami, Margate, Fern Park and Covington due to the possibility that they’ve been contaminated with metal. The recall is a precautionary measure, since the company has received no reports of illness in relation to this product. Consumers with any concerns can receive a full refund upon return of the product. Winn-Dixie Stores Inc is one of America’s largest food retailers with almost 480 retail grocery locations and 380 in-store pharmacies.
