7,691 cases of select varieties of regular Kraft American Singles Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product have been recalled after it was discovered that a supplier failed to store an ingredient at the correct temperature. As a result some of the cheese may have spoiled and could cause illness.

The recall applies to Kraft American Singles in the 12-, 16- or 24-ounce size with package codes all beginning with 0 21000, and having the suffixes 60464 7, 61526 1 or 63360 9. Affected packages also are labeled with a "best when used by" date of Feb. 20, 2015. In the case of the 12-ounce size, the date could also be Feb. 21. Expiration dates can be found at the bottom of the package.

Although the company issued a statement saying that it was “unlikely that the food would make anyone sick, it has decided to issue the recall as a precaution,” and is warning consumers who bought the cheese not to eat it. Instead, they should return it to place of purchase for an exchange or full refund.
