Americans may want to hold the cheese during their Labor Day cookouts. That’s because Kraft Foods announced that it is voluntarily recalling 7,691 cases of select varieties of regular Kraft American Singles Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product.
The food giant said that a supplier did not store an ingredient used in this product in accordance with Kraft’s temperature standards. The company said in a release that,while unlikely, this could create conditions that could lead to premature spoilage and/or food borne illness; therefore, Kraft Foods is issuing the recall as a precaution.
Kraft has had no consumer illness complaints for this product associated with this recall. The affected product is limited to four varieties with “Best When Used By” dates of February 20, 2015, and February 21, 2015.
The affected product was shipped to customers across the United States. It was not distributed outside of the United States.
