More Than A Million Pounds of Velveeta Skillet Singles Recalled Because Soy Allergies Are The Worst

VelvettaIf you were planning to enjoy an easy, cheesy lunch today, you might want to double-check the label. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has announced the recall of 1.77 million  pounds of Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac.

The recall comes after a recent quality check revealed hydrolyzed soy protein and dried soy sauce, known allergens, were not declared on some labels.

The products, with a sell-by date of March 2, 2014 to Oct. 23, 2014, shipped nationwide.  Truitt Brothers Inc., the product’s manufacturer, provided sample labels for the recalled dinners.

The company believes the problem occurred when a label supplier inadvertently mixed labels with incorrect ingredient lines with labels containing correct ingredient information.

There have been no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the meals.

    DON’T THEY KNOW THERE IS A VELVEETA SHORTAGE?!?!?! It’s liquid gold and now it’s been wasted.

    I’ve tried them. Their existence is reason enough to recall them.

    This is so wasteful.
    I just back from walgreens to buy this and at the register the lady refused to sell it saying the item has been recalled.
    I told her I knew about the recall and it was for soy allergies and that I was not allergic to soy so it does not matter.
    She took it away from me and said I could not buy it and that its should not be on the shelf.
    They had like 20 of them on the shelf so obviously they made no attempt to remove them from the store.

    I guess they will throw all of them away when it is perfectly good food.
