In order to prevent choking hazards, Kraft Heinz announced on Tuesday that it was recalling more than 83,000 containers of individually wrapped Kraft Singles American processed cheese slices.
The business, which has offices in Chicago and Pittsburgh, said that one of its wrapping machines experienced a short-term problem that allows a small strip of film to stay on the slice even after it has been taken out of the wrapper. Since then, the device has been repaired.
According to Kraft Heinz, the voluntary recall was started as a result of several consumer concerns. Six customers claimed that the problem caused them to gag or choke, but the business added that no injuries or grave health problems had been documented.
The 16-ounce Kraft Singles American Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product that has a “best by” date of 10 January 2024 to 27 January 2024 is subject to the recall. Three-pound multipacks of Kraft Singles American Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product with a “best by” date between 9 January 2024 and 13 January 2024 are also included in the recall.
According to Kraft Heinz, customers who purchased those goods should not use them and should instead return them to the retailer where they were acquired for a swap or a refund. Customers can also get in touch with Kraft Heinz at 1-800-280-8252 to find out if a product is included in the recall and to get a refund.
