String cheese is a potable food source that is enjoyed by many children and adults alike. If you are a cheese lover these individually wrapped cheese sticks are great when you need a little snack. Currently Kraft is voluntarily recalling over 735,000 cases of the Kraft’s brand and Polly-O string cheeses due to the expiration dates stamped on the packages.
According to news report on October 25 by the Chicago Tribune the cases of cheese shipped to the United States because the cheese could spoil and experience a change in color long before the expiration dates. It seems that there have been reports of the cheese going bad and consumers are returning the packages to the stores they were purchased at.
These particular products were made in the Campbell, New York plant and an investigation is underway. Consumers are advised not to eat the cheese and return it to the store for a full refund. All string cheese packages that are in question have a “Best When Used By” date of October 25 through February 11 on the package.
Kraft Foods Group, Inc., in Northfield, Illinois is concerned for the welfare of their consumers and issued the recall voluntarily. For more information regarding this recall, consumers can contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-816-9432 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
