PepsiCo is voluntarily recalling specific canned Diet Pepsi products because the product contains aspartame which is not listed on the ingredient label, according to a Department of Defense All Food and Drug Activity message sent July 23.
The Defense Commissary Agency has publicized this recall to all its stores, said Richard Stith, lead consumer safety officer for DeCA headquarters at Fort Lee, Virginia. Whenever a commissary has recalled or withdrawn products in its inventory, they are immediately removed from store shelves.
The following product is affected by this recall:
- Diet Pepsi , 6 pack, 7.5 ounces: Case UPC 0 12000 16314 2 with lot codes XXXXTT060581 and XXXXTT051081 and “use by” dates of Sep. 17 and Aug. 20
Customers should return this product to the commissary of purchase for a full refund.
