Walgreens “Nice!” Orange Slices Recalled Because Glass Shards Have No Nutritional Value

ucm480648If you shop at Walgreens, you’re probably familiar with its “Nice!” line of house-brand products, which includes bottles of mandarin orange slices. Unfortunately, some of those bottles might contain something that isn’t very nice: pieces of glass.

The FDA and Milky Way International Trading — the company that provides the oranges to Walgreens — have announced a nationwide recall of 8-ounce bottles of Nice! Mandarin Oranges in Light Syrup after learning of three complaints — including one injury — from customers who found pieces of glass in the bottles.

The recall specifically involves bottles with the lot codes listed in the chart below. Lot codes can be found printed on the neck or lid of the bottle.
