March 20, 2015 — Kraft Foods is recalling about 6.5 million boxes of Macaroni & Cheese due to the possibility that some boxes may contain small pieces of metal.
Kraft said it is aware of eight incidents when consumers reported finding bits of metal in the boxes, but they have not received reports of injuries. Consumers are asked not to eat the macaroni and return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund.
The recall includes the following products:
- 7.25 oz. box, Original flavor
- 3-pack box of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
- 4-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
- 5-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
The products are marked with “best-by” dates between September 18, 2015 and October 11, 2015, with the code “C2” directly below the date. The products were sold throughout the Untied States, Puerto Rico, and in some countries in South America and the Caribbean.
All eight incidents were reported from products made on the “C2” production line. No other sizes, varieties, or pasta shapes and no other packaging configurations are included in the recall.
Kraft said in a statement, “We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed.”
Kraft has issued several recalls in the last few years. In August 2014, they recalled more than 7,000 cases of American Singles cheese slices after ingredients were not properly stored by a supplier. In September 2011, more than 135,000 cases of single-serve Velveeta Shells & Cheese were recalled due to wire bristles in some packages.
