PepsiCo Is Recalling Another Popular Soda After It Was Found To Contain a Zero-Sugar Drink

It happened again—check your labels!



PepsiCo has issued a voluntary recall for more than 2,000 cases of Mug Root Beer after it was discovered the cans actually contain Mug Zero Sugar root beer. The mislabeling recall was initiated on March 22 but the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced the investigation on April 24.

This recall comes just a little over a week after PepsiCo recalled its Schweppes Zero Sugar Ginger Ale Caffeine Free soda because the cans contained full-sugar pop. Now, the opposite has occurred with Mug Zero Sugar soda appearing in those cans marked full-sugar Mug.

PepsiCo Recalls Mug Root Beer for Mislabeling



The recall impacts 2,801 12-pack cases of soda sold in Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. To identify if you have the incorrect Mug, you can check the case packaging for the following information:

  • Code: JUL2224XXXXAS02234

  • Best by Date: July 22, 2024

If you have a can with Mug Zero Sugar instead of the Mug Root Beer you intended to purchase, you can return it to the store for a full refund. You don’t necessarily have to throw the cans away as there’s nothing inherently unsafe about consuming the root beer, rather, it might just have a different flavor than expected.

Because the recall was just reported by the FDA, it’s not clear if the mislabeled Mug root beer is still being sold at stores. To be safe, you can check the packaging information before purchasing so you know you’re getting the regular Mug rather than the Zero Sugar Mug.
