Kraft recalls mac & cheese, says some boxes may contain metal pieces and recalls 6.5M boxes
It is the latest in a string of recalls by the food company over the past several months.
The company recalled 7.25-ounce size boxes of Kraft original flavor macaroni & cheese with "best when used by" dates of Sept. 18, 2015, through Oct. 11, 2015, with "C2" directly below the date. The "C2" refers to the production line on which the affected products were made.
The products were shipped in the United States and to several other countries, but not Canada.
The cases include single packages, three-pack boxes, four-pack shrink-wrapped packages and five-pack shrink-wrapped packages, the company said.
Consumers were asked to return the boxes for an exchange or a refund to the stores where they bought the items. They can also call Kraft consumer relations at 800-816-9432 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time.
Kraft has issued several recall notices in recent months. Kraft recalled almost 8,000 cases of Kraft American Singles in August because a supplier didn't store an ingredient properly. In June, Kraft recalled 260 cases of Velveeta cheese product because they did not contain appropriate levels of sorbic acid, and could spoil or lead to foodborne illness. In May, the company recalled certain cottage cheese products made in California because they were not stored at the right temperature. And in April, Kraft recalled 96,000 pounds of its Oscar Mayer wieners because they may have mistakenly contained cheese.
A lot of kids (and adults) eat Mac and Cheese in this country. I hope they stay safe from KRAPP's negligence.
