The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service have announced that the manufacturer of “Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles- Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac”, Truitt Brothers is recalling approximately 1.8 million pounds of their product according to CNN Money on Jan. 20 due to an undeclared allergen.

This product is a microwavable container weighing nine ounces filled with macaroni and cheese. Truitt Brothers Inc. located in Kentucky is recalling all packages produced and distributed between May 6, 2013 and Jan. 16, 2014.

None of these soy ingredients are listed on the package labels and therefore are considered undeclared and need to be recalled so the consumers who consume this food product won’t have an allergic reaction, sensitivity or suffer a related condition due to these ingredients.
