I am continuing to follow the updates on the moldy Capri Sun pouch, and thought this Facebook post was worthy of sharing…
In response to this question…
…could Kraft be a little more specific and tell us what kind of mold it is?????
Hi Cleo – Many of you have been asking so we’ve been talking with our microbiologists to answer your questions. Here’s what we learned. In the interest of getting an immediate second opinion, we asked the lab for an analysis. They confirmed it was mold. Identifying the particular type takes several weeks so we do not have that information yet. Scientific analysis of mold takes longer than many of us would like.
Mold that forms on food and beverages is usually a common mold. It’s generally much like common bread mold, though it may look different depending on where it forms. And yes, it can be ugly, gross and totally unappealing. It would be great if foods stayed fresh forever. But the basic laws of science and nature dictate that most foods eventually spoil and get moldy.
So the gross part of me just can’t resist looking at the photos posted by Melissa Wiegand Brown.

I will update if I read anything new and of substance… the Kraft Facebook page is cluttered with people calling for a boycott, etc, etc.
