Kraft Polly-O String Cheese Recall Issued Due to Risk of Spoiling
Roughly 735,000 cases of Kraft Food string-cheese products have been recalled due to a risk that the cheese may spoil and become discolored before the expiration date on the packaging, posing a potential risk of health issues for consumers.
The string cheese recall was announced on October 25, after multiple reports were received of the products going bad, impacting products sold under the Kraft and Polly-O brand names.
Although there have been no confirmed cases of food poisoning associated with the string cheese, if the products are consumed individuals may experience illness. It appears that visible discoloration of the cheese, abnormal smells and other indications have been present in cases where the cheese spoiled.
