The cottage cheese in your fridge may be part of a massive recall issued by Kraft Foods Group Saturday.

The recall, according to the company's media advisory, includes approximately 1.2 million cases of cottage cheese are included in the recall. It involves the following popular brands: Knudsen, Breakstone, Simply Kraft and Daily Chef.

The statement explained that ingredients used in nearly three dozen cottage cheese products weren't stored properly at a California facility. That could cause the food to spoil prematurely and cause foodborne illness. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 48 million people get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die due to foodborne illnesses every year. That's why this, and other food recalls, are not to be taken lightly.

Since the discovery, Kraft officials have halted production of the cottage cheese products and are working to fix the problem. Company spokesman Russ Dyer said the recall is precautionary, but admitted the company is investigating one complaint of illness stemming from a batch of cheese that was not recalled and has since expired.

Many of the varieties recalled are tubs between 4 and 16 ounces. The products were stamped with dates between May 9 and July 23. Each case includes between six and twelve tubs of cottage cheese.

If you purchased any of these products, do not eat them. You can return them to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers can also contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-396-6307.
