A recall of cottage cheese has been announced by Kraft Foods Group. The voluntary recall involves 1.2 million cases of several brands of the cottage cheese products because the products have been stored improperly. The improper storage may cause illness to consumers, according to a CBS report on Sunday. Some of the cottage cheese’s ingredients were not stored according to the temperature standards set by the Kraft Food Group.
The brands involved with the recall include some labeled Knudsen Cottage Cheese, Breakstone’s Cottage Cheese, Simply Kraft Cottage Cheese and Daily Chef Cottage Cheese. All of the products affected were made at Kraft Foods Group’s Tulare, California location.
The products were distributed throughout the United States. They were all marked with code dates from May 9, 2014 through July 23, 2014. According to a NBC report, the code date can be found on the top of the package or on the bottom of the cup. The Simply Kraft products that have a plant code of 36-2158 on the cups or have a “W” in the case code are not part of the Kraft recall.
