It was reported this week that Kraft Foods has recalled 242,000 cases of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese because traces of metal were found in some packages. Those 242,000 cases break down to 6.5 million individual boxes.
According to reports, consumers should watch out for 7.25-ounce boxes of the original Kraft Macaroni and Cheese with a “use by” date of September 18, 2015 through October 11, 2015. The boxes in the recall also all have a C2 at the bottom of the package.
According to a press release issued by the company:
Kraft has received eight consumer contacts about this product from the impacted line within this range of code dates and no injuries have been reported. We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed.
The recalled product was shipped by Kraft to customers nationwide in the U.S. The product was also distributed to Puerto Rico and some Caribbean and South American countries — but not to Canada.
Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it. They should return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers also can contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-816-9432 between 9 am and 6 pm (Eastern) for a full refund.
