Obeying the correct storage process for ingredients is of the utmost importance when it comes to creating ooey-gooey cheesy deliciousness. And improper storage can spoil your cheese – as one supplier found out now that loads of Kraft Singles are being recalled.
Kraft Food Group Inc announced the voluntary recall of 7,691 cases of some varieties of its Kraft American Singles because a supplier failed to store an ingredient correctly.
The recall was initiated after Kraft found that the supplier did not store an ingredient used in the cheese slices in accordance with Kraft’s temperature standards.
Officials with Kraft say while it’s unlikely, the issue could lead to premature spoilage and/or food borne illness.
There have been no consumer illness complaints associated with the recall.
Affected product is limited to the 12-ounce, two 16-ounce and 64-ounce Kraft American Singles packages and comes with the “Best When Used By” dates of February 20, 2015, and February 21, 2015.
Kraft urges consumers who purchased these products to not eat them. Consumers should return the cheese to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers also can contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-396-5512.
