Kraft American Cheese Recall Issued Due to Spoilage Risk

Kraft Foods has recalled over 7,691 cases of American cheese Singles products due to a risk that they may spoil prematurely and cause illnesses, after it was discovered that one of the ingredients may not have been stored at the appropriate temperatures. 

The Kraft American Singles recall was announced by the FDA on August 29, after the manufacturer discovered that a supplier did not properly store an ingredient according to Kraft temperature standards, which may cause the cheese packages to spoil before their “Best By” dates.

Due to the ingredient being stored at incorrect temperatures, it could create conditions that may lead to early spoilage or foodborne illnesses. To date, Kraft has not received any reports of illnesses or injury.

The products have a Best When Used By date code of 20 FEB 2015 located on the bottom of the product packaging.

The recalled cheese products were processed at Kraft’s Springfield, Ohio manufacturing facility where they were distributed across the United States to various grocery stores and retailers. The potentially spoiled cheese products included in this recall were not distributed outside of the U.S.

Kraft warns that customers with recalled Kraft cheese products should not eat them and should return them to the store where they were purchased to receive a full refund. Customers with additional concerns may also contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-396-5512.
