- Kraft Foods Group has issued a voluntary recall for some cases of its Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner product due to possible contamination of metal pieces.
- The recall affects about 242,000 cases, or around 6.5 million boxes, of the Original flavor variety that include certain code dates and manufacturing codes. Some packages were included with multi-packs that could have different codes mixed in.
- According to a press release, "The recalled product is limited to the 7.25-oz. size of the Original flavor of boxed dinner with the 'Best When Used By' dates of September 18, 2015 through October 11, 2015, with the code 'C2' directly below the date on each individual box."
While Kraft has had eight consumer contacts about the metal pieces, no injuries have been divulged. In a press release, Kraft said, "No other sizes, varieties or pasta shapes and no other packaging configurations are included in this recall. And no products with manufacturing codes other than 'C2' below the code date on the individual box are included in this recall."
The products had been shipped to both the U.S. and several other countries, excluding Canada, according to the press release.
This recall follows an incident less than four years ago when Kraft recalled, "about 137,000 cases of Velveeta Shells & Cheese single-serve cups due to the possible presence of small, thin wire bristle pieces," Reuters reported.
