A Kraft cheese recall has been announced on 735,000 products. The Kraft Foods Group has put out a recall on multiple varieties of their cheese products because there's a threat of them spoiling before their "Best When Used By" code date, Chicago Tribune reports Oct. 25.
The affected items in the recall are Kraft and Polly-O String Cheese and String Cheese Twists. Their expiration dates are printed as Oct. 25, 2013 through Feb. 11, 2014. These products were shipped across all portions of the United States for food shoppers. The Kraft cheese recall is due to the company receiving numerous reports of the issue and they are acting by halting production and distribution of the cheese in question. As a result, Kraft is requesting customers bring back the cheese where they purchased it from for an exchange or a full refund.
ABC News reports that the cheese products were made at a plant in Campbell, N.Y.
In October 2012 there was another recall by the company for the Jalapeno variety of its string cheese to protect customers from consuming a thin layer of plastic film from packaging. There were instances in which it would still adhere to the cheese if not completely removed and pose a chocking hazard.
For questions on the 2013 Kraft cheese recall, customers are encouraged to call Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 800-816-9432 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., ET.
