There has been a major recall of Kraft American Singles cheese slices as nearly 8,000 cases needed to be taken off store shelves and out of their stores. TIME reported on Aug. 29, 2014, that the Kraft recall is taking placed to the fact that a supplier "did not store an ingredient used in this product in accordance with Kraft's temperature standards."

In all, 7,961 cases of the cheese product have been recalled. Stores have been told to pull the products from their store shelves for the Kraft recall.

The cheese included in the recall was produced at one of Kraft's manufacturing plants. The particular batch was produced at the plant in Springfield, Missouri.

Fox 6 Now reports that there have been no known reported illnesses as of yet, and that it's actually quite unlikely there will be any. The issue at hand is that the Kraft American Singles cheese slices included in the recall could spoil prematurely and possibly food borne illness.

Kraft states that the affected products will have a "Best When Used By" date of either Feb. 20, 2015, or Feb. 21, 2015. The date can be found on the underside of each package.

Per a statement released by Kraft, they do advise that "consumers who purchased any of these products should not eat them." From there, it goes on to state that customers should return the Kraft products to the store where they purchased them.

Consumers do also have the option of contacting Kraft Foods Consumer Relations by calling 1-800-396-5512.
